Hi Guys,

I'm considering removing the true false game from the Off Topic section. It's largely over now and it's just thousands of posts of noise with very little historical value.

Would anyone have any objection to its removal?

Then where would Rae post? :lol:

J/K!!!


Well, it may not have historical value - but we did get a lot of community chat in there. :D

I don't object - it's not like it's going to affect 'post' count. :P ;)


---Just curious though - Sausage, is that thread taking up a lot of space or something? Like are you limited to amount of space you use on this site?

Although True/False resurfaces here and there, it only lasts for a few hours, then it sinks back down to the bottom of the topic list. The only thing I could see happening is someone restarting the game. Although this might be unnecessary, possibly stickying True/False game would keep it from interfering with other important topics.

On a side note: I'm not against it's removal, do what you must.

I have no objections...*cries*

Anyway, I haven't been posting in there very much after I went cold turkey. Plus, I was getting irritated with the "TPBM" abbreviation.

Yes please get rid of it as soon as possible. Thank you very much if you do. Takes up space.

I would say it should be up to the author of it, but that's just me.
I just ignore it, I haven't read it in ages, so either way, it doesn't matter to me.

Not limited to space as far as I'm aware. Just a general clean up to remove a block of junk. If search gets fixed, I wouldn't like to have it indexed.

I have never watched this thread but to get some junk out of the search table seems to be a good idea. I say: remove it.

I don't think that is really serving any purpose anymore, and I personally wouldn't mind seeing it gone.

Don't care for it. Cleaning up the results of the search would be nice.

I don't know why you are all concerned about the thread being in searches, the search function doesn't even work!

I think that when the search function does work, this will show up many results in many searches do to how random the thread is. It would make sorting through search results easier. Also sometimes I think the search function says a word or phrase is too common. This would make those words and phrases less common.

I support the removal.

Would the post count on each person drop due to the deleted posts? I don't care about deranking. just curious.
