Hey guys!

After minimal dev effort (thanks Mark!) – we now have a global off-topic section on the forums.

This means that like the All Marketplace topic, threads posted here will be visible on all Marketplaces. I put a request in for this a while ago so that people from different Marketplaces, who may not interact very often will be able to get to know each other a little better and so we can have more general discussions which capture our entire community!

The old off-topics still exist and are just as you left them.

Enjoy! :)

Sweeet :)

what’s the long term plan with marketplace off-topic threads? merging them into global off topic or just leaving them as is?

Nice! This will surely prevent many missunderstandings about disappearing topics after they’d been moved to random off-topic sections!

I hope this won’t result in manual labour ;) Otherwise we’d have to bring out the Greasemonkey scripts :) But yeah, I was wondering about this as well – they don’t seem to serve much of a purpose now, right? Or am I overlooking something? Are we keeping them for legacy reasons?

I think this would be the best thing to do since anything offtopic isn’t really going to be marketplace specific is it…
