    Default Do you want to get rid of the off-topic section?

    Some users have voiced the opinion that the off-topic section holds no place on the OOD community Forum. While a counter-argument could be that the off topic section at least provides a home for topical global discourse, encouraging the hunting & fishing threads to be solely hunting and fishing, I defer to your votes.

    Do you want to get rid of the off topic section? Please vote in the comments below or at the poll above.

    Thanks folks.

    Tough one..I see other forums who have Off topic forums that work well, either they are more civilized or are heavily moderated. Nice to have a place to ask questions about wiring trailers, backwoods skills or best accessory to buy etc etc.

    But there is a dark side and as the Animals once sang....it's also a place that has "been the ruin of many a poor boy" HaHa..

    I have to say no. It's a members only place and it's useful to have a place to post or talk about really none outdoor topics.
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    X3. If we got rid of off topic, we would have off topic posts in forums everywhere.

    I'm on another forum where we talk about hunting and dogs. There is an off topic category, but it is rarely used- no politics/religion talk allowed.

    Here, MOST of the posts are in the off topic section and few in the hunting, fishing, dogs categories. I think that's sad.
    Maybe if there was no Off Topic section this forum would go back to what it once was.

    IMHO, the Off Topic section is a good fit !! Perhaps a bit more “moderating “ would be in order...

    The way I see it, it's like the Keg offering a vegan menu. Rarely venture there, I'd be surprised if I have more than a dozen post in that section, so wouldn't miss it if it where gone.

    Remember May 1,2020 when they say "We don't want your hunting guns".
