The mods have been doing a great job around here.There are lots of threads which are useless. I'm not saying that "This thread will never end" is useful but it used to be a thread people used to chat in. Some of the people here do not use instant messenger. I also know that it wasn't Offspring related, but why was that erased?

You should allow at least one thread like that so people can talk.Besides chatting there they answer some other threads about Offspring.It sucks when you have to change the foruns all the time...

I didn't delete them, I closed them. And I posted--in Spanish--at the end of the Foro en Castellano explaining why it was being closed, and that anyone interested in doing so could create a new thread like that in General Chat.

If were to be told by anyone higher up to reopen them, I would.

Yes, people used to chat there. But there's a whole other forum for just chatting--General Chat. Hence the name. Chat threads of whatever non-Offspring sort are more than welcome there.

I think Little Miss is doing a good job.

Maybe she could've moved the Spanish thread rather than closing it, but meh, she's doing her job at least, and not abusing her powers in my book.

If I was a mod, I would close this thread too =P

but yeah, that type of stuff belongs in General chat. However, it would of been better to just move the threads to that forum. I guess the mods aren't able to do that? Oh well...

It was a classical thread, as neocon58 said you could moved it!

I know that, but they used to talk about Offspring in there too.I just thought that thread would be there.I may be wrong but it seems that everyone was waiting to be a mod in order to stop those two threads. (Please Little miss, tell me if I'm wrong).

I also know that, but you would allow that one. Those people never post In general chat.

I said that. I'm just talking about those threads where people use to chat.

Come on, no one have reasons to close that.If you don't like the thread, just don't reply it.

Instead of erasing that thread, they should of just moved it to a different section. But yes, most useless threads should be deleted.

I agree Skunkit.But those were only for chatting, you know...

Yes, chatting is just great

Just remember to put the word "offspring" between here and there so the thread don`t get "off topic relation" :rolleyes:

I agree Skunkit.But those were only for chatting, you know...The spam threads should be deleted, if there's too many chat threads about the same thing, those should be deleted, but the ones everyone uses or the first thread about that thing should just be moved if it's in the wrong section.

I'm sorry, but other people's laziniess is not a compelling argument for me to reopen those topics. It takes almost zero effort to start a new topic in General Chat. In fact, I think it takes more effort to whine about it here.

Camila, do you understand Spanish as well as Portugués? If so, you would have understood the message I left at the end of the Castellano thread, which was as warm and welcoming as I could have made it without jumping out of someone's computer monitor and hugging them, con un beso en la mejilla. I also explained what General Chat was, and its function.

I also notice that not one of these replies is in Spanish, nor have I received any private messages (which I also invited Spanish-speakers to send me), which leads me to think that you're the only one feeling indignant about this. And no, I wasn't just waiting to become a mod to close those threads. I had forgotten about them entirely until someone revived them.

I was one of the people posting in that thread and I think you could have moved it instead of closing it, one of my friend its complaining about that too, don't know about the others because I haven't talk to them since yesterday but I'm sure they don't agree. And I know sometimes it wasn't Offspring related but we used to talk about The Offspring too and some people that doesn't know english went there to ask some questions about the band.

I agree with the fact that the topic is closed. But I also agree it would've been better to move it to General Chat and let Endymion and The Unholy Nightbringer decide whether it should be closed or not.
I think some of the people liked the fact that it was a thread with a lot replies.

Little Miss, I speak spanish as well and I understood what you said. That's why I'm telling you that you're doing agreat job as a moderator.I just complained about closing the thread because as Ynuiasha said some of the people do not speak english very well and they feel more comfortable speaking in their own language. I did understand what you tried tyo say don't worry ok. I'm not disagreeing with you.The other useless threads non related to Offspring sure need to be closed. It just popeed up in my mind that thses only two "chat" threads would be allowed.

Tijs is right again,but I don't think starting those threads in general chat would be good because some spamming buddies would mess uo all their conversation.This time you must agree The Foro en castellano didn't bother anyone in here.They onlu used to chat there about everything instead of starting lots of threads,which in my opinion was good because they weren't spamming the forum. I believe if they started this kinda of thread there, the people who do not read this forum would complain as well as they complain about "talk about the person above you" and "what are you currently listening". Maybe they would be closed and the reason would be: Too many useless threads.

Coder I'm not considering what you said because you're an dumb.You are the one who used to start some useless threads.You have nothing to do with this.

GUYS YOU MUST UNDERSTAND SOMETHING.MAYBE SOME PEOPLE ARE AT SCHOOL OR WORK.THEY USE THE FORUM TO CHAT BECAUSE SOME INSTANT MESSAGING ARE NOT ALLOWED AT WORK OR SCHOOL.

That's why I thought those threads would be allowed.I understand that Little Miss is doing ehr best to keep this forum ONLY Offspring related ok.

Thank You Little Miss and tijs for the atetntion :D

In my opinion it should be moved to "offspring.com talk" section or "general chat".

Here's what I'm gonna do:

If the topic stays in 'General Offspring Discussion' it will be like it is now: Closed.
So I'm gonna re-open it, and move it to 'General Chat' where it will have another chance. If it's gonna get locked in there, you can all go whine about it to Endymion and TheUnholyNightbringer, because I think they're the ones who should handle the off-topic thread, because they chose to do so.

So here you go, you get half of what you want, and we do.

that was a fair move.

even though the thread might be retarded, moderator don't choose what things to discuss, only spam and porn was supposed to be deleted, nothing else.

and i may add that different people visit the general offspring discussion and general chat, and i dont know who does it bother if theres one or two topics in a wrong place, not me at least. let the guys talk there. but now its moved to another section, so i dont know...

tijs seems to be a great mod, not too much bossing around. :)
