So,its pretty obvious that OT is going to hell.some blame it on un-interesting topics,some one fad threads,some on stupid catch phrases,some on generic religion threads..yada yada yada
Im not trying to argue here,im personally asking some of you what more you want to see at the OT.fad threads,ok i agree they are pretty dumb,but most of them are done on days when nothing is happening(nothing is ever happening anyways)
stupid catch phrases,again very dumb,but usually are 2-3 words long,and it doesnt hurt your finger to scroll down.i can understand how people might want an actual repsonse to their post,but when the topic is allready 3 pages long?
generic threads(all usually lead back to religion lol)are yes,pretty dumb,but it evokes alot of discusion,and it makes OT less boring when nothing is going on,and if they just arent your thing...just scroll down.
now,un-interesting topics seem to be everyones real problem with OT,and honestly there are to many obvious reasons why there are these topics
1-teens/early adults dont neccesarily have to many mindblowing things to talk about,or even know alot of things that are interesting,that arent allready being repeated on OT
2-not enough interesting things to talk about generally,really,are we supposed to make up things just for kicks?lurk on yahoo news for hours just to find some crap no one is going to post in?
3-no responses,as in sometimes someone posts something kind of cool but no one really understands what to do or say.what do you do when someone post a paragraph on quantum physics if you dont know anything about it?thats where those stupid catch phrases come from,when theres no other good response we can give.
another thing about the fad topics i dont really understand...if nothing is interesting why does it matter ifthey mess around?like for instance,there was about 10 topics about dumbledore being gay that one day,would it really be a big deal to post some fad threads and some religion threads to stop that non sense?of course,on a cool day with some really good posters coming up with some really interesting topics,fad topics and religion topics are annoying cause they get all the attention.idk,im just rambling and id like to hear some of your thoughts,considering you read my wall of text,what would you(or what could we)do to make OT really any better?
