Is General dead?

Yeah. Is General dead? All the activity is flowing onto the Random board - seems we're only able to talk about random shit, cant really keep a thread ontopic so we just all talk in Random instead.

Yeah what Rad said. We are all capable of staying on topc but lately there haven't really been any interesting topics to do that in. That's why we go to Random.

No, you! >=[
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

Yeah. Is General dead?

Maybe. Probably because no one has anything productive to say.

I leave, come back, and all the random threads have 1-3 extra pages...can't keep up. >.<

Seriously. I call it P-Bar's Paradox:

There is a forum. This forum contains a known value of new posts with an unknown value of worth. The only way to know whether or not it is worth reading it all is to read it all, thus rendering useless any conclusion one may or may not come to. Furthermore, the relative worth of the posts is dependent on the reader, and so we can say that before reading, all new posts in the forum are simultaneously worth reading AND spam.

QED.

What I'm saying is General is slowly dying, because more and more people are sucked into the Random board, they know they can post just about anything without it getting moved somewhere, so Random is quickly becoming the new General.

There is no "General" discussion on this forum. It starts off general, then it goes OT within a few posts, and then turns into mindless spam.

I think if we loosen the rules as to what "General" is then people will post more in the General board. I mean if a topic changes in a thread, so be it. That's the flow of conversation - You dont need a new thread for every different conversation, this shit happens.

What's happening though is we're not getting that flowing conversation like we used to in General - it's just turning into Random bullshit that's near impossible to keep up with.

So, my plea to you, dear forumers - post more in General, and have long conversations that change topic and flow, because that's what I loved most about this forum.

As a beginning we could move this topic to General because it is kind of a discussion.
Me thinks.
