Recently, I have been noticing a large influx of threads asking a variety of questions. These questions range from how to get artistic drawings to daily routines that we perform in our lives. Questions are good. In fact, it can help induce conversation and can create an entertaining thread. However, question after question about the stupidest ideas or thoughts gets obnoxious and turns this forum into a cesspool of ignorance and mind-numbing questions.
Off-Topic does not mean "Fill all your simple curiosities here".
The Internet is a huge tool filled with information everywhere. In fact, while you read this, you're on it right now. The Internet extends so much further than the Minecraft Off Topic Forums. Use it. It's a tool. A useful tool. If you have a random curiosity, then go online somewhere and search it up.
If you want to know how to get a drawing of something, then Google it. If you want to see a video on how to dance, go to YouTube. Point is, these forums aren't for your random thoughts and questions to rise up over and over and over again. If you really want to ask a question that you cannot find anywhere else, go for it. But please, for the love of God, don't be obnoxious about it. Just because you have a question does not mean that you should just ask it and ignore anything else. Keep the conversation going and bring other topics up too.
There is a "Search" function.
I know. It's a crazy and confusing tool. But trust me on this. This thing is useful. Not particularly for you. But for us. We don't want to read your stupid and annoying question that's been repeated to death. There's a Search function to look up any previously stated stupid questions that applies just to you. That's fine that you have a question, but we don't want to read it if it's been said a dozen times before.
This is the Off-Topic Forum. Discussion is key.
Just because this forum is stamped with "Off-Topic" doesn't mean we want to see a thread about how many times you farted. If that's a question directed at us, then please just leave. Off-Topic can be about anything, yes, but seeing useless and obnoxious threads doesn't do anything for anyone. In fact, it turns others away. It's pathetic seeing a forum littered with mindless questions and almost no discussion. Like I said before, questions are good. But if you cannot ask one without creating new thoughts and discussion, there's no reason top ask it at all.
This is the Off-Topic. For discussion on all things Off-Topic. Random curiosities belong in Google. Go there.
These forums have always been filled by children with developmental disabilities, but recently it's become much worse. It's gotten to the point where it seems that people post merely for the sake of posting, and think up some random crap to make some thread with.
