Not sure where you were that day, but we had a big discussion about Off Topic subjects on this BMW car forum. Viv the Main man as im concerned on this UK forum goes off topic on every single post. No need to expand on that is there

also in this big discussion we said that off topic subjecvts are great and break up what could be a quiet and sometimes dull forum....

so to distinguish from ''car-related, my exhaust has fallen off'' topics to '' just bought a 6 bed house in LA'' topics WE I say WE regular contributers to the forum place an

OT: in front of a title! If you AINT interested... DONT LOOK


Carlos

Post count has absolutely fuck all to do with anything Carl.

I see this on so many Forums. Seems that the post count is a badge for some that they need for acceptance or credibility.

Quality not quantity.

Clearly the only way to sort this out is with a fight. May I suggest the use of baseball bats / knives/ guns - whatever tickles your fancy.

Well, thanks, I think, Carslosh.

The 'off-topic threads' saga has still not been sorted out, so I'll PM the admins about it again.

I anyone feels I should stop 'off-posting' in the UK section, then I'll be happy to think about it for a second or so, before telling you where you can go, if that's ok.

Carlos, I think it works better for forum searches, than not having it.

I would still prefer all OT threads to go into a UK sub-section, to keep the whole place 'tidy' & I will still push the admins to get this sorted out.
