Andy, I agree with Ben. Leave the off topic stuff right where it is. I keeps the site rowdy and keeps me reading for a good laugh every now and then. I've got little kids and don't get on the water much right now, so lurking here is equivalent to my paddling season for the moment. I read some of the off topic stuff, and some is too stupid so I skip it. But, I'd hate the off topic banter to lose visibility on the site b/c its been isolated to some other area.

Don't take the bait everytime. Some of the recent stuff smells of just trying to get a rise out of you... which is part of the allure of this site!

hang in there!

Don't be to quick to leave the forum guys. Give it a slow chance.

Your also talking about a forum that gets little action. I used to mod a forum and the main thing I cared about were posts per day. Thats what the advertisers will pay for. So if its spam or river talk it should matter less. I think we as humans like to just come in here and spout off sometimes.

We enjoy helping eachother but we also love to state our opinions and act like freakin goofballs sometimes. Its a release. It's what keeps us coming back.

Anyway good luck with the forums andy, all change is a bitch and they will get used to it.

If your looking for more order then perhaps your idea of off topic will be ok. Word to the wise... People tend to post where most will read it. I redisigned a full site and still found that everyone posted in general chat topics becuase thats where most people will read it.

I also hate locked / moved topics.
