Off Topic

I tried to post this in response to the sarcastic ARFCOM comment but was unable to for some reason.

This is GUNSlot. I have no problem with BS discussions. They should just be in the proper places. That's why the "Off Topic" section was created. We are lucky enough to have good search engine optimization as a site. When someone searches info about a particular gun or accessory, we generally come up ranked fairly high. That person doing the searching doesn't care to read through a bunch of BS discussions, they're seeking information plain and simple. My comment was not meant as a personal attack to any particular person. I was just trying to say that we need to try to stay on topic more of the time. Every successful internet forum follows that simple guideline (especially when it comes to a new members post). There is a proper place for any type of discussion Gunslot. "Off topic" is where all discussions that aren’t about Guns, Knives, Strategies Tactics & Training, Political & Legal, Girls, and Site News should be held.

No "high horse"

I'm on a Shetland pony. Those are the forum rules. They always have been. There's no need to get you panties in a wad just because I requested that we try to stay on topic. I don't understand the problem with creating a new topic in the off topic section for BS discussions. It helps keep the site organized. It's as simple as that.

i agree reaper

I used to own a forum, i shut it down because of the off topic posts in improper threads, got tired of throwing things where they belong. today sometimes i post off topic because the further down i read the more lost i get on what the topic was haha... but i agree, theres a place for everything.

I'm not home officer, take me drunk!

G.A.D.D

I'm not trying to be the soup nazi and I'm certainly not trying to start a pissing match. I realize there is the G.A.D.D aspect. I was just asking as a general rule of thumb we try to stay on topic in informational threads. BS threads are different. Thats all I have to say on the subject. Done ranting! Fuck runs truck.

All of you that know me, know that i love to tell a story, you also know that i do NOT brag.. I'll make this short and sweet. Reap is right.. I wasn't the one that drifted off on the stock topic.. But sure am the one who does more social interaction and comments than hard gun topic posts..

I believe from the wonderful welcome i received, and from the return of others that my presence is appreciated here.. That being said it's appreciated by the dozen or so who do more social interaction, and we are NOT the reason that the general public shows up.. Our witty humor might keep them here, but Reap is spot on with it being a distraction for the serious gun types who come on for gun talk, and not the social interaction..

I think we all know, even those who don't do the verbal back and forth, that this site works better because of the social thing being added, but i also know that Reap's request to keep off topic "stuff" off topic is valid..

Lets all stay together on this, far as im concerned the whole thing can be deleted.. Will watch the comments, and try our best (im serious here guys) to keep to the subject.. That being said i hope everyone gets that if we lose .. ok lets say Hamp.. LLE.. Daisy.. not going to list all.. you guys get this.. If we lose anyone because of over enforced rules we lose it all.. This site works because you guys are all on it.. ALL of you guys.. What brings them in the door is the serious gun stuff.. what keeps them is the interaction.. easy to correct, and a done deal far as im concerned.. so can we delete this and do what we all know we should do... i'll see you guys on off topic or site news..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.
