Hi everyone, As I'm sure you can tell, I'm ClassyOwl. During my time at Mineplex, my "first love," so to speak, has always been the forums; while I may not post much compared to my peers, I'm constantly reading the forums and keeping up with the Mineplex Network's running dialogue. During the last few years, I've consistently observed an increase in popularity from our network's "Off Topic" subforum. While I have no issues with the Off Topic subforum itself, lately the content being posted has strayed further and further from the network itself and increasingly flooded the "New Posts" column which, at times, can certainly make it seem more difficult to find community discussions actually pertinent to Mineplex-- which is the content I'm coming to the forums for in the first place. Furthermore, the more popular our Off Topic subforum becomes the more prevalent lower quality posts become on the forums which have become an issue plaguing nearly every thread. I don't think the Off Topic subforum should be removed because the content that people post there has to go somewhere, but I personally think that it should be taken out of the New Posts column in an effort to promote more Mineplex-centric discussions and higher quality posts. What do you all, the community, think? Should the Off Topic subforum stay in the New Posts column, or should it be taken out? Why or why not? Thanks so much for reading, and I'm looking forward to reading all of your responses. -- EDIT [4/14/20, 08:10 EST]: It's been brought to my attention through various means that @Iscariot has already posted a thread on the matter that has been addressed by the Website Feedback and Website QA Senior Moderator, @Marzie. Please familiarize yourself with it here. I intend to leave this thread open since the intent of this thread isn't to ask Mineplex to remove Off Topic from the New Posts column, but rather to host an open dialogue about whether or not Off Topic posts should stay in the New Posts column (and why). Thanks!
