    Icon8 Off Topic on an All Time Low ?

    Agree.. Disagree..?

    I think its the lowest period ever right now since ive been here since.......... been here since almost forever.. i just wanted to know how the general feel was.. that is from everyone in honesty.. I think it really needs to be sorted because it isint healthy at all.. it creates a bad rep for the newcomers.. it creates a bad rep for the people who have associated with OT for a good while.. its going no where..

    2 Points i want to make clear

    2nd Point.. Regarding Please if you dont like the thread ignore it..

    Alright i can do that to a certain extent.. but when OT gets clogged so much as it is right now.. its hard to.. because 1 thread intertwines with another and the bs just carries on.. Plus its really hard to "ignore" threads.. im concerned about looking out for OT.. ive kind of dedicated almost all my time to OT in CW throughout my stay at CW from 2002..I Love OT to the core.. so askin me to ignore threads is hopeless..im only looking out for the best interests of everyone else and lookin out for good of OT.... not just looking to cater to a selected minority..

    I totally agree with you lord. Some one I respect on the forum.

    Regarding Marc, interesting you bring him up abou thaving a life because apparently I have one too and yet he accused me on the Chanderpaul vs Martyn thread of attacking him and then went about in the football sim over me.

    I think he needs to sort himself out and not behave so erratically.

    Totally agree, I think we should all realize that this is a public forum, and not a private chatroom to exchange compliments or ask for opinions to decide what to do with yourself.

    I'm not talking about Piper, but some people need to get a room.

    Now why would that find place in this thread? Do you want this to descend into a personal battle too?

    I think you'll find most people agree. Nibbs ought to take something from the fact that James closed two of his threads today, and described one of them as "One of the worst, if not the worst thread in Off Topic's history."

    No. But when we are indeed discussing problems, its better we discuss them properly. Marc being a senior member should behave more responsibly which is why I brought it up.

    Wait .. wait.. i agree its a public forum.. but i and almost a lot of other people have exchanged compliments and asked for opinions.. but rather than being hyprocitical..we havent carried it over the edge.. which is my main concern.. you can do things to a certain point because after there are a lot of great people in here who have solid different opinions that id seek.. but i guess you should really be serious of what you talk about aswell..like sudeep had once mentioned in his posts regarding that... but the main thing is not to carry it over the edge.. thats when things start to get really really hard..

    Now why would that find place in this thread? Do you want this to descend into a personal battle too?
    Btw exactly my thoughts.. this is strictly an OT concern right now, which is always number 1 for me.. i dont think about CC at all.. right now its about sorting the OT problems here..

    Okay its a general statement not directed towards Marc but as senior members, people should act more pleasant rather than directing low blows.

    If even that doesnt happen, there will be utter chaos.

    Without a shadow of a doubt.

    As I said in some other thread, getting a little bit tipsy is okay. But then going to levels the three guffins do, it's just pure lack of self-respect on their part.

    Ignoring the threads is definitely an option, but when the main OT page has half the threads which are utter drivel, it's difficult to not open one's mouth about the concern.

    I was talking about the extremes too. I was referring to some posts like :

    When the latter comes in a thread where people are airing their concerns about OT, you know something's wrong.

    Pratyush.. i could be seriously wrong brah.. but marc has done absolutely nothing of concern in OT off late.. and OT is the topic on discussion right now right here..
