I just don\'t get the point of it.

We get maybe 3-5 new threads a day tops in the OT forum.  Quite a few of those are sports.

The reason we made the political forum was because we wanted it to be more serious.

I just don\'t see why I need to go to the trouble of creating a forum that won\'t do anything for the board as a whole.

So what, make car threads in OT.

Make sports threads in OT.

You make as many as you want.  IF they blow up OT and threads start falling to page 2 on the same day they are created, then it\'s time to make another forum.

I just thought it would stimulate more topics on sports, the same way the political forum stimulated more political topics.  It seems also like an area where enough happens that new threads can constantly be made, and there is enough interest that it could take off.

Technically Vid is right.  The topic of this forum is PS2, anything not related is "Off-Topic"

However, there is big enough interest in both PC and other consoles that they merit their own forum, although we got one maybe two new post a week in each of those two.  I honestly think PC and Console Discussion should be merged.

Yeah but didnt we make them after the games came out?

Id love to see an automotive forum but i dont know how many other people would be interested in having one. When we make threds in OT its just not the same. Perhaps it would be but nobody is going to make a car thread in OT unless its either post a car you like or something big.

Meh.

I just get annoyed having to go back out to the main menu every time I want to go to current events.  I can\'t imagine having to go out for sports and autos when you can just throw everything in OT.  

IF we had a full page on OT every day I\'d be all over splitting it up, but damn, it takes days.

Eaxactly. People would see a car story thats mildly interesting and not bother posting it on OT but if there was a forum exactly for it then they would b more inclined to post. Oh and yes get rid of rants and raves to make room for it.

I STILL say you guys should get rid of the Current Events forum and move the threads all back to OT.

But remember, when those sectons were put on, we had an actual site. Right now, its just the forum so there will be hardly any traffic. I say lets just put questions in Main Forum. It could use more traffic.

Yeh i suppose, if the mainsite is never going to go back up - which it doesnt look like it will - then why dont we "advertise" somewhere becasue the forums will just die eventually if we dont keep getting new members

CE gets pretty busy and heated. I dont see why theres much of a reason to axe that, vs something like rants and raves.
