Is it important to stay OT ?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Is it important to stay OT ?

Post by Anchor Moy » Sat Oct 01, 2016 8:14 pm

There are the for and against arguments for threads staying on topic. The 'for' remaining OT argument is that people who are not usually forum posters ie; :newbie: or lurk can hit a thread and find the info they want. Threads that get derailed like : http://cambodiaexpatsonline.com/general ... 2-130.html are amusing but confusing.

This is a question for mods, but it's also a question about what CEO forum users want to see. Is it important to stay on topic, or is it the open-ended discussions that lead to other subjects of discussion that gives the forum its personality ?

So what do you want ? More thread moderation, so you can access accurate info on CEOCambodia more easily, or a place where you can have pizzas and space-cats in threads called Sihanoukville Beach Front ?
I'm ok for both, but there is a question here and I think it's good for posters to give their opinion. :beer3:

Threads need more mods, or let them free ?

If somebody wants to talk about something which has absolutely no relevance at all to an existing thread, it should be posted on a new thread

Mod View: I think it's just the nature of forums in general to get OT.


Personal View: We need more photos of JLs hair styles, over the years, in random threads. ;-)

Your Mr Peanut reminds me of Mr Hankey. :D Sorry.


Doesn't matter if he's not Chinese, does it ? (Mr Hankey is multi-cultural .)
