How about a topic that does not pertain to crafts.  A topic where the members can ask questions about anything other than crafts.

A while back we did this and people felt that this got in the way of craft discussion.  Like for example, all posts get shown in the "30 most recent posts" and a lot of people didn't want non-craft-related posts showing up there.  So if I can find a way to do this that doesn't get mingled up in the craft-related discussion and would be totally optional for people to look at, I'll do it.

You could make a general chat board and a general craft board? I don't think I understand. I like the idea of a general board.  Tongue

Well I'm suggesting something that may have been suggested before, but I've got some detail in my suggestion at least....

What about a somewhat-non-craft-related board for random chatter?  - with sub-boards like entertainment (movies/music/etc... could be craft-inspiring),  bitching about relationships (i mean... getting advice on relationships Wink)  - you know... those things that INTERFERE with our crafting   Smiley

This was tried before, and the general consensus was that it just cluttered things up and distracted from the main goal of craftster - crafting!

Glitter has a board called La Vida Crafty for that sort of thing, so you can always check out that board if you're interested.

I'm noticing that a lot of threads are being locked for being "off-topic" which I understand, but what about a general board? Where the topics don't necessarily have to be craft related. Judging by the amount of non-craft posts, I think people would use it and it would keep all of the other lovely craft boards on topic.

just a suggestion

I agree with adding a general board 100%. I love the ladies [and guys] on craftster. I've had two non craft related threads locked/deleted.. both of them on the issue of mental health and depression. A lot of the people on this site are very intelligent, so I really enjoy hearing advice from them.
