  • I'm all for the restoration of the off topic section of these forums. There is only one real problem I see. With more people comes more hate. It's human nature, there is no avoiding this in a political and passionate society.

     

    If politics can't be avoided completely, obviously create a section just for that too.  Win/win

  • Off topic was the busiest part of the forums and removing the bulk of the site traffic was a punch in the face to this place. Then them following it up with the switch over to the sub standard Sony run forums was the knock out punch.

     

    I can see the issues that we had the place was toxic at times and that was probably bad PR for Sony to host those sort of conversations. But all we really needed was a rule of no politics and a little moderation and they could have fixed it. Instead they just pulled it down and lied about archiving the old posts... They burned all evidence of the place lol. Trump for and against and BLM/race relations type of talk leaned right and I think Sony leans left.

     

    Personally if we had music and movies thread's that people could easily post vid's without using work arounds I would be happy enough, That's the stuff I miss. Oh and I liked the Cannabis thread the NFL thread and the post your A/V setup thread we need those back too haha.

    Like I said in another thread, I agree OT should return, but I don't think it can return until:

    • The forums are developed with more robust features and stability (why rush to get a broken OT in there like the rest of the forums?)
    • and from that, implement a community moderation system. OT topics can get out of hand and break forum rules quicker than other sections as buck alludes, so there should be some extra eyes on it.

     

    If those can happen, then I think these forums would be ready. I think OT boards are great for community building, and even if the conversation leads to gaming outside the PS brand, it's a great resource for Sony to see what they are doing right vs. doing wrong. Sometimes it's a blessing to see where you fit in the context of the whole industry and have good peripheral vision.

     

    So yeah, I hope the the forums can get to a point where OT can come back.

    @foster - Ah, yeah I hear ya.

     

    Well, a PlayStation code is PlayStation related right? I'd argue it fits in General. Although ironically, you might have chosen the best place, as this subsection seems to be the heartbeat of whatever community essence remains here. Not like it really matters much at the moment anyway, all forum sections might as well be renamed BINANCE for the time being anyways ;D
