It's about high time we actually got other sections of the forum more use.

 

You probably already know but there's obvious candidates for those forums like discussions of a particular nations tanks, or the artillery vehicle most have an issue with the M53/M55.

 

We need a separate forum for discussing game mechanics like pen or ramming etc. No more of those bloody MM threads.

 

General discussion is honestly a real eyesore to look at and I don't think most of us would miss it.

I would tend to agree with you.

 

General Discussion has become, or always was, the one stop to post whatever topic, even for those topics that already have a dedicated section.

 

This is because you have more chance to be read if posting in GD, and by a much greater number.

 

Unless the moderators enforce the topic rules, and move the posts where they belong, nothing will change.

i moderated a busy forum once, we had a team of 5, all voluntary and we moved stuff pretty quickly.
You get the impression that moderators log in once a week here.

+1 for having a hashtag that is on point

First topic I want to see: the way of the hashtag

But what about the pinned arty thread?  At least leave that alone.:trollface:

But where would discuss general things?  You know like, “arty sucks” or “MM is rigged”?

Don't you feel the "Arty" angry posts have come down? or, have been replaced by the "Lights" plague!

I would suggest that WG gave a few of the forumers the privileges to move the topics where they should belong.

 

There are several jolly fellows here that would enjoy doing that.

 

Hey you, WG moderators, how about it? get some help across the time zones to redistribute the posts....

Yes and we'll add a thread especially for you dedicated to all things M3 Lee. While we're at it, get rid of forumers and threads. Oh, wait...

Should this not have been posted in the correct forum?

Solution? Give it the announcement treatment. Make it viewable across all forums in different languages.

Probably the best way to go about it is to get rid of everything but the ‘Off Topic’ section.

You can't deny there is a little bit of sense to this thread though.

Here here!  Generals are overrated.  We should have a “Corporal Discussion” section.  Damn I’m genius......

All forum problems are caused by living posters. The solution is simple:

 

 

:trollface:


I asked an EOD man how he dealt with the stress of his job. 

 

He said he didn’t have any stress. Either he was right or else it became someone else’s problem.
