Yes remarkable that people cannot stick to the topic. Sure the Mods could be more attentive in splitting the topic and make a new topic out of it.
It would be extremely beneficial if all
members made a concerted effort to stay on topic.
For your information a considerable amount of time is spent in splitting and merging topics and creating new topics for the "off topic" posts removed from threads as well the general cleaning up of threads etc. Currently on average more than 300 new posts are made everyday across all forums which means there is necessarily a lot of reading to be done before any splitting/merging takes place. The team are all volunteers and as such have a limited amount of time to dedicate to cleaning up threads along with all the other tasks which are undertaken to maintain this forum like dealing with trolls and spammers etc
Also the never ending returning same topics / questions, must be seen as off topic..
Newcomers for example will often ask questions which may have already been asked or may start a new topic which has already been discussed, this can be resolved in part if all
members utilize the "Search" function more often to check whether a particular topic exists or whether a similar question has already been asked etc. before hitting the enter button.
.. and be directed to the sub-forum where this was discussed earlier.
Any members, not just the team, can be of benefit here too by redirecting or giving links to relevant posts/topics.
