This is a public plea for a totally OT forum. Amy, I asked you long ago when I was a mod, and was politely turned down. (Don’t worry, I still love you anyway!) But because I’m hard headed and determined, I’m asking again… and asking for backup.
I would love an off topic forum. A casual chit-chat kinda forum for us KH lovers who have something to discuss that’s not knitting related. I admit, I come here first when I need input from my online friends. Even before my own blog! I come here for OT because I love how no one here is catty, snotty or rude. I love KH because everyone is helpful and always willing to lend an ear or offer advice. I don’t know of ANY other forum anywhere with such a pleasant atmosphere. Honestly. I love KH so much for this reason. So this is where I come for OT discussions.
But, I admit, I feel weird about posting OT topics in a knitting forum. I feel like I’m invading the knitter’s place with my off topic subjects and sometimes I just don’t post because I don’t want to be constantly posting OT topics.
Amy, if we had our own forum for OT, we wouldn’t feel awkward posting our OT topics and those who don’t like OT, wouldn’t have to weed through them for the knitting topics. (I say WE with the assumption that I’m not alone here, but ok, maybe I am. And if so, just ignore me and pretend I’m not being a total disruption.)
Don’t get me wrong, I like all the forums here at KH, but I just wish we had one more. A casual off topic forum for everything else.
Anyone with me?
