Now that we've picked up filthy Xenos into the forum, I expect we may see an increase in membership. I was thinking it might be a good idea to introduce a general chat area to promote a camaraderie between all the different members, to promote community when not arguing over which chapter is the best, etc etc. Many may like the same shows, movies, what have you. I'd for one play a lot of WoW and would love to get down on that with like minded ppl. Merely a suggestion.

"The third and final group are aberrants; Chapters who, through quirk of gene-seed, mutation or stubbornness, eschew the Codex Astartes in favor of other structural and combat doctrines......Others, such as the Space Wolves and the Black Templars, remain stubbornly independent, looking to their own founder's ways of war and caring little of how they fare in the eyes of others......Such divergent Chapters play little part in this volume, for this is the tale of the Ultramarines, and all who follow their example."

I would never talk to the traitors.

 

I do like the idea of a general chat system though!

This isn't likely to change.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean a chat box. I mean just a general sub forum.

"The third and final group are aberrants; Chapters who, through quirk of gene-seed, mutation or stubbornness, eschew the Codex Astartes in favor of other structural and combat doctrines......Others, such as the Space Wolves and the Black Templars, remain stubbornly independent, looking to their own founder's ways of war and caring little of how they fare in the eyes of others......Such divergent Chapters play little part in this volume, for this is the tale of the Ultramarines, and all who follow their example."

The option of allowing non-hobby / general discussion has been discussed before. The concensus was that it would be to the detriment of the forum should it be allowed.

But, it's the domain of the Admins to decide these matters...

Given the stated purpose of the B&C is defined in our mission statement here, I don't expect that we'll ever have a non-hobby sub-forum.
The Great Repaintening! - follow along on my journey to repaint a Blood Ravens army. | Brother Casman's Waaagh! - All of my Orks... for now. | Brother Casman's Terrain Extravaganza! - Everything is complete!


In the operations of war, [...] the expenditure at home and at the front, including entertainment of guests, small items such as glue and paint, and sums spent on chariots and armor, will reach the total of a thousand ounces of silver per day. Such is the cost of raising an army ...

Not just the purpose and mission of the board, but the fact that one of the rules being "No off topic discussions" pretty clearly excludes the concept of non-40K discussion. It even states there that this includes things like movies, shows, cars, etc.

The new rules were just revised and reiterate this concept. It's not a conversation that needs to be had. If the Admins were going to change it, they would have done it this time around.

Many a forums die as they become a cesspool of an off topic section and people just post there instead of thoughtful content for the rest of the site.
