OFF Topic Forum created

Post by AdminJeff » Thu Mar 14, 2019 3:26 pm

To reduce the number of emails we (Chris and I) get about OT posts, I'm making an executive decision (that's why you pay me the BIG bucks as a volunteer). All OT threads will be moved to the OT forum. Benefits are:

The clutter on the main forum will be reduced
My email support inbox will reduce substantially
The time I spend responding to emails about OT will be eliminated completely

The drawbacks
You guys will have to click one more place to find OT posts.

I've already implemented this and a few folks have noticed. The fact that nobody has complained AND there are several new OT posts in that forum tells me something. It's working. By all means, go ahead and complain. Just complain in the OT forum which is now located here:

viewforum.php?f=16

This message will magically destruct in 30 days (not really, but it will be sticky for that long)

Great idea. Thank you.
The old forums are a gold mine of information.

Shouldn't this be posted on the OT Forum?

I thought thats what the OT was for, so people didnt have to open it and complain. This is way more complicated than it needs to be. You guys have a tough job and it shouldnt be. You cant please everyone.
Dont get me wrong you guys have done a great job. I think we miss alot with all the different areas to look. I love the old photos but rarely go there due to time.

Ditto on Dallas' post.
We had no clue you fellas were getting emails about OT topics. We heard bits out there, yes.
Bellar about these things if you need to. That's Holler if you don't know. Like a bovine that bellars/moos! :)
How many complaints come from paying members? Don't answer that if you wish.
I'm pleased as punch about the OT side.
The wealth of knowledge has been tapped before about OT bits and now has a home. Cool!
May I ask an obscure question about an old tractor or gas engine here? We have many fellas that... are the same.
I'll be careful.
Thanks!
Since I lost my mind mind, I feel more liberated

You can post anything at all here in the OT forum. That’s the whole point. And nobody can complain that it’s not model T related.

Are religious and political posts allowed?
