Currently wondering why this is a necessary thread...
No one posts new topics when this thread is up. Should seriously at least give it a bit of a rest and see how the lounge goes.
I'm with you. I watched this thread kill the lounge (and even the MMA part of the forums to an extent) once already. The senior members just hang out here, and they should be the ones encouraging discussion and educating the new members in the MMA areas of the forum.
Also, the fact that so many people lost such a huge chunk of their posts when this and the no noob thread were deleted just shows how much it takes away from the other parts of the site.
And what am I doing now? I'm glad I got my two cents in.
