Off-Topic is the place to post threads that will hold information and replies that can veer off the meaning, “creatively” or otherwise. However, this does not mean that you are allowed to spam or break other rules.

In more clear words, you converse about anything unsorted here; threads that allow differing conversations belong in this subforum. Bait threads such as “[Username], look at this” are discouraged.
This section is also lenient on such things as flaming and trolling, as compared to most others; however, as stipulated below, all site rules still apply.


Off-Topic is meant to be the place for casual open discussion topics; please note that serious opinion topics belong in the apropos Debate subforum.
~~Thanks, Tigger.

Anything silly or “playful” can go here.
~~Thanks, Cid.

Please note that threads not appropriate to Off-Topic will likely be moved; if they are not appropriate in general, they may be locked, and in extreme cases deleted.

BUMPS
Please do not bump a thread that is more than one year old, unless it is an sticky’d general discussion or “registered” thread. If you must bump a thread instead of creating a new one, please do so with the latest and most active you can find. For instance, a seven-month-old thread with three pages is preferable to the same thread that is four years old and has only six replies.

As with each section, the rules for Off-Topic are the general site rules and original site rules.

If you would like to dispute a moderator action, please take it up with that section moderator first if possible, then with another section moderator or a global moderator, and subsequently -- if necessary -- with an administrator.

All moderators and Admins are requested to post and provide a suitable reason when they lock an Off-Topic thread, so complaints and requests for unlocking can be filed and sent accordingly; this is of import because this section is meant to be comparatively lenient.

Please do understand this is an interpretation of the otherwise vague function of this forum.

NOTE: If an Off-Topic moderator, global moderator, or Admin would like to change anything, go ahead. tounge

So only excessive flaming is disallowed or flaming in general?

Excessive flaming; thanks for pointing that out.

It would be nice if everyone refrains from mild and moderate flaming as well, though.

I have unlocked this topic to bump it up to give you guys a clear understanding of what Off-Topic is.

Do note, Flame threads, Bait threads, and the like are still NOT ALLOWED.
Spam is STILL against the rules in this forum as well as any other.
This is not a forum section to spam and flame, this is simply a section for things that do not fall under any other category.

If you have any questions about what any of this means, please PM myself or any other mod or admin that is in charge of this section.

I have gotten this answer from 3 Admin before bumping this thread.


For completely off topic discussions where you can dick around (still no flaming or mindless spam, however) we have plenty of topics for that, all of which are stickied in the off-topic section.

I’m going to leave this unlocked for a couple days.

I am bumping this one last time before I lock it tomorrow, just to make sure people read and to see if anyone has any valid input.

This may be in the Off-Topic section, but it is an On-Topic discussion, keep that in mind.

The opening post has received an indispensable update; please refer to it to understand the purpose of the Off-Topic subforum.

I would like to reiterate this such that clarity is provided: all site rules apply to Off-Topic. Comparative leniency within the section does not mean that spam, death threats, suicide encouragement, pornography, excessive flaming, and other offenses are allowed.

Thank you for your time. ^^
