Please Watch Those Threads...

Postby Justice Hog » Thu Jan 15, 2004 12:18 pm

Just want to follow up on a previous post by BossHog.

Several of the threads I've been reading recently have been, well, sort of goin' off on their own little tangents...straying off the designated topic.

Here's an example:

Post 1: The Dallas Cowboys are a bunch of criminals....
Post 2: What's criminal is they way the seemed to win this year....
Post 3: I can't believe they won so much, Parcell's did a good job.
Post 4: Yeah...but Parcells is certainly no Joe Gibbs.
Post 5: Absolutely not! Joe Gibbs is the best coach ever!!!
Post 6: Yeah, and he's won the Super Bowl with 3 different QBs!
Post 7: That says it all, doesn't it. The man is God, let's face it.
Post 8: Yeah, there are a lot of Redskins fans that worship Gibbs like God.
Post 9: I'm one of those fans, but at least I'm not like those "born again" dudes in prison.
Post 10: Like those Cowboy players....who are a bunch of criminals!!

See that, it took 10 posts to get back to the topic originally posted!!!

So....for future reference, if you feel you must stray somewhat from the original intended topic......please post a new topic!

I think everyone has been guilty of that the last few days, myself included, and we'll put it down to all still being Gibb-led.

What I would like to add is that the only thing that needs to happen to stop it from happening is to NOT BE AFRAID TO START THREADS.

Sure... take a look at the page first and make sure the exact same thing isn't on there already, but otherwise, don't be afraid to start a new thread if the topic is even slightly different. If it's been beaten to death already or something like that, one of the moderators will gladly just provide a link to another thread, or move it themselves.

The importance of keeping threads on topic is that when threads stray into something else completely, some people may miss out on conversation that they'd like to be a part of, though they had no interest in the thread topic.

This is not to dissuade you from posting at all, to the contrary, we hope that it will encourage more, by making conversations both topical and intelligible.

thx.
