Well, I've got to say I have got a great deal of pleasure out of reading the O/T posts from Saharaman and Kim M and the answers. I'm sure all the PC gurus are furrowing their brows over Mike Harding's post too.

I really enjoy this Forum but it was starting to bog down a bit with a lot of questions about which fridge, which route from A to B etc etc. Just my opinion of course, not intending to criticise those Posters because the questions are obviously important to them ( but they could be resolved with a little research).

So, more Off Topic Posts please. It makes the place a lot more interesting.

cheers

Gone Bush...you're right...so much repetition of questions here...mostly from non members...they should be encouraged to research the forum before pressing the submit button, and then encouraged to become a financial member. We all enjoy the O/T posts, which keep us glued to this web site, so all the pedantic richard craniums out there should take a running jump at themselves...hahahahahahah Bring it on :-))))))

why would becoming a financial member stop o/t questions being asked?
most of the repedative questions come from visitors who probly find this site after typing a question into google etc.
there not to know about the site and how it works using the search function(isnt that a pita)so they just ask the question.

o/t is one of the most annoying things that come up.
yes i dont read them but i shouldnt have to bypass them
if you want to post a topic on something o/t the web is a huge place im sure theres a site for anything.
eg why is easter so early
who gives a toss if i want to know ill type it in google and find out
i only use easter as an example because its the latest o/t post.
thers a lot more in the www if you want to know about o/t things

I do have a concern about regular contributors who do not want to become members, and continue to enjoy most of the benifits, at our expense. Pay the $$$ and help this website get even better.

I don't mind OT stuff, we all have issues, and sometimes we like to share them highlight them and we kind of regard this place as a group of friends, for some of us it is a group of friends and it's a great to meet up and have a laugh..and for some of us we have friendships with people we haven't even met yet so it's a perfect vehicle...

A few months ago there was a thread about the demographics of the people on this site, that showed there was a diverse group of people with equally diverse socio-economical backgrounds.

So, IMHO O/T threads on this site can be rewarding for those that feel they can ask a question to a group of people they may consider being able to help.

Having said that, I do get annoyed when people post On Topic subjects, such as I did with my last trip report, and a photo thread and get less than 1/2 a dozen replies, and then watch an O/T thread that goes on and on...

Cheers Steve.

Your post probably fit under one of the following:

1. Boring as bat bleep

2. People had no interest in the topic

3. People did'nt feel they could add anything to it.

Would you really expect anything else Steve? Everyone has an opinion about a rubbish OT subject but few have the knowledge to speak with authority on most serious posts.
Your last one was probably more of a statement than a question anyway applying to only a handfull people so it's not the 6 that replyed that counts but the 400+ that read it and if it helps one person out well your post has done it's job.

Good one GB. When I saw the heading, I thought 'not another bash on OT posts.' 'OK, I have the time, I'll have a look'. Good on you for stirring the pot.

I'm happy with OT posts. I probably open about 50% of threads, based on the heading, the first line - and sometimes who did the initial post. If I'm a bit bored, I open and read more, sometimes all.

The only posts I don't like are the 'red neck' or the ' I know more than you, you must be a DH' ones, but I just avoid them most times.

Within reason I'm happy for people to post what they like. Yes, I'd sometimes like more 'meat' on trips, travel, vehicle set ups and mods etc, but in the meantime - live and let live.

Oh - and more OT posts - as long as the are interesting.

Mike Harding should be banned......all he talks about is going bush, prospecting, GPS advice, freezing his balls off in the high country, then has the cheek to talk OT.

As for Hairy (The Scrubby Town Dill) let's just forget about his OT reports that may be of interest to a few people who don't live up north....telling it, the way it is!

Willem's got to go. He was dribbling on about a community art show recently. The silly old fart gave me some Information a couple of years ago that was very Important to the family. Very OT.

Footy is coming up with all sorts of stories lately. He's gotta go.

Kev and Darkie? We don't want anyone with a community bush spirit on this site.

Who else can I think of....? LOL

Getting rid of the OT discussion wouldl destroy this site. Much of the story takes place via MM.

The way I look at it is this:

Every time I've sat around a campfire with a mixed bunch of personalities we have always had a darn good yak.

We don't miss any subjects and they are definitely not confined to 4wdriving.

We take the mickey, tell a few off colour jokes (ok, a lot), talk about our vehicles, other peoples' wives/husbands, and generally solve the world's problems.

That's why I like OT posts. It's the same sort of variety.

It's also good to see what other Forum Members are doing in their communities, like Kim.

No Fred,

Not many people know this but I have no relatives.

I was seeded from another planet.

I hope to God the Mothership comes and gets me soon.

Good post GB. I have had a few arguments in the last week with regulars on this site after they have criticised others for posting what they thought were OT posts. These posts were of interest to travellers.

Thanks GB.

It's not the "OFF TOPIC Threads" you need to worry about it's the reddish neck one that are the problems, the ones that are posted just to stir things

Is OT 'on topic' or 'off topic'?

It's difficult to tell the difference sometimes - maybe that's why this thread is so long?

Look, I just can't wait for the next lot of WOMEN'S CRICKET.

Just what is it? It can't be called sport. Maybe "affirmative action" is out of control.

What about all the manufacturers of Box protective devices? Surely they must be worried if WOMEN'S CRICKET gains some ascendancy. Unless they wire two together and they wear it under their shirts? I might be onto something there.

Shouldn't it be banned? They should all be herded into Silly Mid On and laughed at.

OK, that deals with Red Neck and Sport posts all in one.

You want OTPosts ""So, more Off Topic Posts please. It makes the place a lot more interesting""

I moved into a unit in January and had to buy all things you need to live in a 'house'

I bought a Samsung 7.5kg front loader Washer/Drier combination and swear it's the best washing machine ever and @1.5k has to be (choke)

Totally dead quiet, efficient, space saving as you just put the clothes in ONE machine and set the digital controls to wash and then dry them too (if you want) and you don't have to remove them till they are finished. You can open the front load door duing the cycle to add clothes and wash as little as a few pair of sox if you want on the 1/2 full cycle with out hassles.

None of this washing in one machine and them putting the clothes into another machine to dry them, but I'm a lazy bugga.
(This is NOT an add for Samsung, bought a Samsung upside down vacation setting fridge too, but getting it changed over because the things too noisy)

Mainey, if you're allowed to have a washing machine I guess you're in the low security area.

Yes, is low security area, back fence is only there to stop beach sand coming into property and we sometimes leave the gate open anyway when we are beach fishing so we can simply put fish direct into fridge in shed after cleaned in salt water.
