Default OT policy change

From Trotter,

Quote:
Due to the number of threads being posted here rather than the forum it should have belonged, a new policy is being instituted. As some have already noticed, this policy is now in force.

Threads/topics that should have been posted in another forum, e.g. hardware/software issues, game questions, multimedia question, will be closed and deleted. The posters of these threads will be warned, and if the behavior persists, further steps will be taken.

Just because Off Topic gets a lot of traffic does not mean that the proper forums should be bypassed. Off Topic is for what does not fit in the forums already established.

It was meant to be put in both spots so people would see it sooner, and adjust accordingly.

Does anyone else find it amusing that Trotter posted it in the wrong topic (according to himself) when the post itself was about how people should stop posting in the wrong topic?

Amusing, Maybe. But we Mods, super mods and admin and get away with it.
