Off topic discussions about IF

Sick of flags removing your posts if they stray even slightly off topic?
Want a place to come just to chat/let off steam away from the confines of such strict regulation and constant whinging?
This is the thread for you. Photos allowed, spam allowed, @Maxmustang even allowed ;) all welcome to discuss anything about IF.

Stop bothering the nice people on the internet and go do some work.

Would you believe I am working haha. Its a very slow day for the construction/distribution industry in my area of the country.

I’m a fine one to talk. Supposed to be doing stats and doing anything but!

thanks!

have to say I do get annoyed when get flagged for saying anything slightly off topic, even if it was related to the original post (for example got flagged for a discussion on A320’s which changed into a discussion on training programs for BA and EasyJet…both who use A320’s hence why the discussion went that way!). In the real world a conversation evolves and doesn’t remain on the original topic, though I agree you have to be a bit more disciplined in how a forum works as its not quite a chat down the pub with your mates!

sometimes, community gets angry and this is the results : Flagging

yes I read that thread. I think a lot of it is due to the wide age range of people who use this forum so the Mods do have to be careful how these things operate.

Thankyou. I would use the lounge if I could. I agree with you David. How on earth can we get to regular when I’m constantly getting flagged for having a normal.run of conversation that someone gets ticked about because its off topic.

Thankyou for using this thread

We’ve been here before ;)

if you dont have more than 5 flags in the same posts, you can continue your 100 days progress :)

What if I flag this as off-topic? :P

I have to stay, all banter or grouchiness aside, that this forum is one of the friendliest that I’ve used in some time. Generally I think there’s about the right level of moderation on here. It’s not always perfect but I think the balance is pretty spot on.

If you want to have ‘spam’ to ‘let off steam’ spam each other via PM. You can talk about whatever you like on PM.

have to agree with you there! well moderated and generally nice and friendly!

How can you close something that has over a score of posts and many likes. It is specifically following its invention and is a way to stop flagging, offence or anything like that on other threads.
