Where is Off Topic then?
 
Seeing that the topic that was off topic is now closed because it was off topic, where do the Off Topis types officially go? Ten forward is a "Introduce yourself, share fan art, fan fiction, role play" area assimungly a RP area (dont let that fool you though, if you try it even there you'll get flamed back out again. Its a MMOG not a mmoRPG after all). The off topic area seems to have vanished, and the moderator that closed it meresly said talk about STO, and didnt give a location to take off topic stuff TO. Id LIKE to see a Off Topic area, so they dont post here, or in Ten Forward.

By the way, wouldnt it have been more productive to move the thread where youd rather have it rather than locking it outright?

I do not think there is a general (non STO, non ST, etc) forum.

Well then how are they expecting people to not post the wrong (IE Off Topic) stuff in the wrong forum when there is no "right" forum >.<

Well, if you are just chatting with people, try Ten Forward.

I think it is intended for everyone to get to know one another.

there is no outright off topic thread. the ten forward thread is not labled as such, it carreis largely sto related stuff as well.

In Game
 
The off-topic is pretty much all the conversations inside the game.

Perhaps then this is a clue that these forums are for Star Trek Online, and off-topic subjects should be taken off-site?

Just a thought.

They didn't create an off-topic forum because they don't want to promote off-topic conversation at this site.

Sad, but true.

Why is that sad? What comes of promoting off-topic conversation other than a thousand blathering threads, full of rage and leet speak, signifying nothing? That still have to be modded...
