We should be allowed to ask any sorts of questions as long as they’re not incredibly stupid.

Keep in mind you can mute categories that aren’t useful to you.


Seems to me like people post more questionable topics outside the Off-Topic subcategory. All forums need a place for members to relax and discuss things besides work; some people may make bad posts now and then, but eliminating off-topic discussion is not going to fix that.

I think it’s necessary, just misused. The way I see it, it should be used as a kind of #development-discussion for non-Roblox discussions. Right now, it often gets filled with unnecessary and nonconstructive threads.

Even the developers need to discuss about things not related to Roblox Developing. I think it would be pretty stupid to remove it. But we need to keep in mind that we shouldn’t abuse/spam the off-topic category, by adding irrelevant topics.


Off topic is fine for things like “spacex rocket launched” or “Superbowl discussion” – things people would be generally interested in. The problem we’ve always had is people interpret off-topic as “No rules. I can shitpost here!” and we get threads like “do you like the letter a or b better?” – those are already against the “intelligent” lounge rule, but some threads are more subjective in quality than others. The forum staff would have to be the arbitrators of whether a thread was useful to the community or not, and I’m sure not many would be a fan of that.
