I completely agree with hi. The cats thing was OK for a day... I didn't mind 20 people having cats in their avatar. But when it started to be brought up in random threads, and when people started threads about it? That had crossed the line.
I mean come on... this is a frigging spudding forum! Honestly, you can post all the random stuff over at Theopia, and it will be accepted. Spudfiles was at its peak a week after Spudtech closed, because all relevant ideas and threads pertaining to spudguns were being posted. Now all of this cat bullshit...
I wish that no offtopic discussion was allowed... whether it be actual things (like fixing dirtbikes, building other things, etc) or bad (cats...), just so people could focus on spudguns instead.
When I used to log on to spudfiles, I'd click the active topic button, and read every thread with the exception of maybe one or two (and those were the crappy threads, talking about random stuff). Now, I only read one or two QUALITY threads, and the others I ignore, cause they are BS like this.
What do you guys think? Should we let the randomness continue and allow Spudfiles to degenerate into a forum overwhelmed with people talking about things which frankly no one wants to hear about, and should be at Theopia anyways, or can we cut the bullshit and allow Spudfiles to be a spudgun forum?
