That's easy! Just tie weights to your shoes... OR ... your feet, and they will show you the way to the area LOL 

 

PS if you go past it and don't stop, it's not my fault.. LOL

Now that just might be the best idea I've heard all day!

Just one question:

 

How am I supposed to read your posts in Colonel Potter's voice when you changed your avatar?

 

You'll have to read them in Prince Harry's voice now...  :D

What does Sidney Poitier have to do with Harry Belafonte?   Oh, wait.  Don't say it . . . I don't want to know!

 

 

 

 

 

The real question is ~ ~ ~ why is this thread posted in "General" instead of in "The Off-Topic Lounge?"

I'm really not sure this off topic section is a good idea. One of the things I always liked about this forum was that it was just models.

Oh well not to worry, I'm fairly certain someone will cause some random discontent and Gregg will shut it down.

Apparently it wasn't just about Models, hence the need to put all that OffTopic stuff in an OffTopic Section.

I dont get the hate for people wanting to talk about things other then models,   we dont talk about models the entire time at our club meetings,  and almost every forum has an off topic section.  I dont see why it matters if its done in the proper thread section

Kind of hard when you hit view new content and all you see is off topic stuff....

Another forum also made an Off Topic section years ago because Political talk was very popular. But the owner also made it better by making the Off Topic board not appear in the "New Posts"....if the reader wanted to view off topic political rant, he would click on that thread. This allowed the majority to read new threads without having to navigate through 50 threads about George Bush. I haven't visited there in awhile but if memory serves it worked out well.

I may not be reading you correctly, but the Off-Topic forum was created specifically because there were so many off-topic, non-car-related threads in General, which now should be devoted to car/modeling subjects only. As Harry mentioned, the Off Topic forum still has to follow the long-established rules of civil conduct, no religion, no politics, no flaming.

 

Look at the threads in the Off Topic forum. Almost all of them were initially posted in General, and almost none are related to cars or models. However, I would have put Off Topic at the top with  General because of their prior relationship and to create a more obvious distinction between the two. I'm sure there will continue to be off-topic threads posted in general, which the moderators will have to move.
