Default Off Topic Section?

Sometimes I am not sure where to put something, because it does not seem to fit any of the other categories. I would like to suggest an Off topic section, that covers 'everything else'.

Yeah, I know this is a carry over forum, but it's still a forum and I can't think of a forum being complete without an off topic section (only major flaw of this place).

We'll think it over.

Fratching is mostly a catch-all for controversial issues that can't be discussed on CS.com and a few other referring forums. Usually a member here is a member at CS.com or the like and can take their non-controversial and/or personal discussions there.

But as Fratching gets bigger and busier, it may be something to consider.

My main thing is that I prefer the smaller community here at Fratching. CS has blown up into a huge community and I feel like I don't even know half the people there like I used to whereas I know the majority of people here.

I like the idea simply because I often run into the problem where I know that something I'm posting will have the potential to turn into something hot or cause mixed feelings, or sometimes I just want to be safe, but it isn't necessarily hot-button or controversial. Most of the time it's a vent (granted, CS is the actual vent site, but we aren't allowed to talk about anything that would cause a frenzy, so herein lies the problem) and I'm often told by a few posters that this is a debate site, not a vent site, so I think an off topic or vent section would be great!

*nods* Sometimes I have things I wish to fratch about that really doesn't fit in the other sections (or at least to me).

I'm not a member of CS and as I don't work in any of the industries involved I would feel out of sorts registering, hence why my work rant's are here and not there. So, although this might be an over flow from CS and others, but I've been tempted to say "take it to fratching" on my old haunt, which nuked alot of its faff forums years ago.
