That's the kind of thing I meant.  Offsite but linked.

Pardon me if this has been addressed previously, but how about a board that has nothing to do with crafts?? Similar to the freestyle boards on getcrafty or la vida crafty on Glitter. A place where we can just chat about whatever and get to really know one another. That would be fantastic. Anyone else agree??

Just to let you know, there is an ongoing discussion about whether there's a good way to let people in the craftster community get to know each other in off-topic conversations. So there may (or may not) be something like this in the future, and it's definitely something that Leah and the moderators have thought about.

I recently got into a discussion with jMi about the subject of off topic conversation. There are a few problems that come into play. A short list of them would include:

1. Bandwidth
2. Time spent by mods cleaning up the boards.
3. Craftsters upset that their post was deleted.
4. The fact that this is a craft forum, not a chat forum.

I'd like to present my solution, which I feel, solves all of these problems.

We set up a board for off topic conversation that constantly expires according to time. This would mean no work for anyone cleaning it up, no one can be upset because their post was deleted, bandwidth shouldn't be a problem, and although I know this is a craft board, there's been lots of people interested in simply chatting with one another for many reasons. It's been pointed out that there are a million other forums to chat on, but I think Craftsters have a sort of camraderie and would like to expand upon that. jMi said an expiring board was possible and that I should bring it up and see what others think.

So, how do you all feel about it? Is it a good idea? Do you have suggestions as to how it can be better?
