    Hi, everyone. Since this is an OT sub forum, I was hoping it was for things, not, related to bed bugs. I'm sure most, if not all of us, are frustrated, stressed & depressed about those nasties, so, being able to play games & share other non bed bug discussions would be beneficial. I do belong to other forums where we share a wide variety of subjects. Even so, I would like to be able to talk about other things here as well. Thanks.

    Nobugs, our wonderful hostess with the mostest, will probably give better direction.

    I label the post Off Topics and post a new post/thread labeled "Off Topic: Games!" (for example)

    People get upset when you "hijack" a thread by going off topic (I should know...).

    They
    Are
    Out
    There or

    TAOT

    They
    Are
    Out
    There
    = TAOT

    Yes-- thanks for asking. It's okay within reason as long as the title specifies the discussion is "off-topic" and states what the topic or purpose is.

    These threads can be fun and helpful to others.

    I would avoid starting lots of such posts in one day.

    I would also avoid "bumping" them, which isn't really done here except in a limited way with urgent questions like bug IDs. That's because it pushes more recent posts down in the list of recent discussions.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Thanks for the response. I've been using forums for 15 years & have been a mod at one for eight. I always try to be respectful & considerate. I won't flood this board with OT. I just thought it would be a nice distraction.
