off topic ramblings

Post by stephen » 19 Nov 2019, 15:13

If the moderators allow it, I think maybe we should keep a thread open for completely off topic ramblings. Basically anything and everything that doesn't fit into a standard thread which would allow us to go off tangent and talk about anything without the need to keep it 'on topic'. Basically a freeforall that allows anyone to contribute to anything. Like a chat channel. I've seen it work well on other forums and some good (and maybe some bad) comes out of it.

Sounds like a good idea, but does anyone really post to this forum anymore?

Well that's the idea, maybe a more looser thread might be able to spark some forumers to post more.

Like we are doing now :)

But yes unfortunately with the rise of social media and the hiatus of the band this place and other forums have become a bit derelict. However this place and the people in it are still nice enough for me to contribute somewhat.

Well I'm all for it. Maybe it's because I am old school, but I kinda miss the forums. I especially miss this one as there are a lot of really cool people on here.

The official forum was great around the think tank era. I wish i'd met more people than I did but it was always nice to get a more international feel for things considering that I was brought up in such a small village.

The idea was superb. But I wonder why it was not supported by the other forum users. Is anyone still here? I am looking for friends for online communication. You can be from any corner of the world. It would be great to form a multinational friend team for everyday chats. What do you think about it? I am from https://worldpostalcode.com/united-states/new-york/. Share your locations. Let’s get acquainted.
