I just wanted to give you all a heads-up that we’ll be retiring the OT forum and merging it into the General Knitting Forum. This was the way off topic threads used to be way back when, so we are just returning to our roots.
It seems the OT forum has become less and less active over the years and I think off topic threads will get more visibility and participation if they are posted in the General Knitting forum. In fact, the General Knitting often has a handful of active off topic threads. So in a few days the OT forum will vanish, but all the existing posts should be found in the General Knitting forum, and Amy, the Mods, and myself encourage you all to use the General Knitting forum to post off-topic discussions.
If you were around when we first started this forum in 2004, you’ll be familiar with the convention used to denote an off topic thread. You’ll want to prefix your title with [B]OT[/B]: . For example,
OT: Happy Caturday Everyone!
This is just to let folks know that this is an off topic thread so they can decided whether or not they want to view it.
I hope this doesn’t come as an upset to any one. We are trying to find ways to trim our forum a little bit in an effort to help focus visitors and encourage more participation. KH is a close group and we want to keep that cozy feel.
If you have any questions, please do let me know.
