Hello my fellow forumers!

I think I have the one and only solution to stop threads going off-topic!

How about having a sticky called "Chat" in General Discussions, where we just chat about off-topic AOE3 things, without having to go off-topic in other threads, and stop making new threads.

I will set-up a vote here, so I can know your opinions.

- Yes, I want a "Chat" thread. Votes: 9 - Colonel_UGMO, Dr House, Arcane Ranger, BurningSushi460, Droideka_11, Gun_Guy, Cholesterol, Eicho, macndouche,

- No, I don't want a "Chat" thread. Votes: 3 - Lying Dutchman, Giskard, BrianManahan



This is a great idea to stop threads going off-topic, and just have a fun place to chat it the General Discussions of Age Of Empires 3 Heaven!

Come on guys! If any of you people are out there who just read the forums, sign up and post in here if you think it is a good idea!

So, post with your vote!

Well a place to chat without the complete randomness of the Saloon would be a good idea IMO.

No! The Salooners go too off-topic.

What I'm wanting is an AOE3 Topic Chat, where we can just chat without going off-topic in other threads.


If I get more than 20 Votes for yes, I think that this should be considered!

I think threads will go off topic anyway, and for quick questions there is already Q&A (Giskard, pay me out in euros please). So that't 1 vote against. But if the majority of the forumers supports this, the mods should make it possible.

YES I was thinking of something like this already
Sometimes you want to talk about off topic things without having to go to the saloon where almost no one from the GD and SC forums post there.
Besides I feel like the saloon is too closed to new forumers.
I mean they had thread to welcome new forumers and it really didn't make sense It just kind of went really off topic.
They're not so bad when they can stay on topic though.
Like in the "Annual Heroes" thread.

So maybe we could kind of migrate there if the salooners remain more open.
But I would like a thread to ourselves

I vote NO.

I am not fond of the Saloon - True.
The Saloon is insane - True
The Saloon is thoughtless - True.
If you post in the Saloon you will be ripped apart and they will feast on your internal organs - Not true.

As an off-topic forum there is no problem with the Saloon. (Do not quote me on that without including the first five words.)

A Chat sticky here would accomplish nothing. It would not prevent off-topic posters making their threads any more than the Saloon does now. If you want to post off-topic, GO TO THE SALOON. THEY WILL NOT EAT YOU.

I sincerely doubt any moderator will post in favour of this no matter how many forumers sign up.

@ James246:

It's brilliant that you're volunteering ideas, keep it up. Just because this one is flawed that shouldn't keep you from making suggestions that could potentially improve the quality of the site.

(And next time you have a good sticky idea run it by me before you post it. I need to post more stickies can help you with feedback.)

Giskard: BrianManahan = Tsar_Ivan_VII? Discuss.
Giskard: BrianManahan = Tsar_Ivan_VII. It's no longer a question.
Giskard: Isn't BrianManahan liable to be banned anyway for being the smurf of a banned forumer (Tsar_Ivan_VII)?
BrianManahan: I'm not sure who that is, Giskard, but I see what you is trying to do. I don't smurf >:O

Off-topic as in "anything you want" or "anything you want about AOE"? I'm all for the second idea, but the first is saloon-stuff.

@Giskard
Im going to have to disagree with you here giskard.
I think a chat sticky would seriously cut down on the off topic comments.
The reason these comments are made in the first place is because we want to know what our fellow GD and SC forumers (NOT salooners) think about things that are not necesarily AoE.
Like signatures for example.
As an off-topic forum there is no problem with the saloon
Lol there are plenty of things wrong with the saloon, some of them things you just listed.
One thing is that they can literaly get away with saying whatever they want, even if it breaks CoC.
Now that a think about it didn't you get roasted alive for "being all serious" about using the term gay in a demeaning manner?
And you're saying there's nothing wrong with the saloon?

The truth is that the vast majority of forumers here don't post in the saloon or ever will post there.
That's why I think a "Chat" topic here would be a good idea.

1. We eat Babies, and not always the jelly kind.

2. Can, but when has normal ever been interesting?

3. Not many.

4. Its not AoE3 related so would get closed.

This has been a public service announcement from The Saloon, we hope you fouind it informative and useful.

I support this idea. While Saloon is the place for off-topic things, a new race, "the Salooners" have populated it. And we, The GD&SC community, want our own offtopic forum.

I don't understand it. From what I've read, you want one ultimate thread to discuss off topic things relating to AoE. This simply doesn't make sense.

1. My biggest concern is that I think that it simply won't work. If a single thread is used to discuss multiple off topic subjects, then it will become so unorganized that it will be harder to understand than the saloon is.

2. If you have something to say, such as talking about sigs in James's example, why not just talk about them in the saloon? I still don't see a problem with this. They go off topic, but I'm fairly certain that an off topic thread will go even more off topic. I mean, wouldn't that be the whole point?
