Thread creep problems

Please can everyone focus on keeping posts limited to the subject of the thread.

I am totally in favour of long diverse chat threads, but please can you not turn a Civic related thread in the main forums into one of these. All of these threads should be kept in the non Civic chat area.

Thank you.

Pottsy,
Totally agree. Something took a turn for the worse recently which I think is inappropriate on a site like this, it starts resembling a chat room, I think.
Regards, pcr.

This wasn't aimed directly at you, so there's no need to stop posting!

ST, the banter is good, just not where is changes the subject in a thread about the Civ. We have many more readers than posters, and it makes it tricky to read about a certain problem and possibly its solution, when the thread diversifies within a few posts.

All the fun and games are welcome in the non-Civ section, and occasionally in the introductions section.

Pottsy is it possible to stop threads in the off-topic forum form appearing on the front page ?

Only asking because this would help solve a lot of the problem with users getting mixed up in a conversation

Knat, if you mean this as the front page, then it is now done. Good thinking!

Wow that was quick and should keep everyone happy.

People wanting to chat can do so and people wanting to talk about civics can see the hot topics

Just to reiterate.

"Chatting" ie off topic conversations about things are fine in the off-topic forum.

"Padding" ie posting for the sake of it, to increase post count is not fine

Well said. It's tedious clicking on subjects your interested in reading about to find the subject matter so far off topic

Thank you.

thank you for bringing this up i was starting to panic when doing my bi daily log in to find 200+ posts each time, and most of it was banter it's hard to trawl through specific honda related threads to find the gems at the moment

I thought that I kept on thread.

I just seemed to upset people who don't look out of the back!

Thanks for this; a bit of banter is good; but sometimes pages have to be trawled through to get to one particular piece of info...
