Suggestion: Breaking down Off Topic

I know im still kinda a noob here so i dont know if this has been brought up before.

Ive noticed that the Off Topic Thread gets alot of threads on a daily basis.

What about breaking down the Off Topic in to different categories?

I know this is a large board to begin with and has alot of awesome people. Im enjoyng my time here and really getting a spark ive been missing.

Hmmm, we almost need a different category to begin discussing this.

I do but after not being on for a few days sometimes you want to get to some meat, or fish, or veggies before you hit up the jokes. lol

Now I understand. And this forum is large.
What you need to do is after you olg on and get the HOME page, look to your left. You see where it says Quick Links? Okay. So then below that you'll see Forum Listings. Click on that and every catagory is broken down. Fish, Meat, etc. Then click on the catagory you want and the newest stuff will be the first you see int that particular catagory.
(Or just make it easy on yourself, and don't be away for days, silly. LOL! Just kidding)

Actually, Off Topic used to be broken down into subfora but it is really much easier to manage this way.

Everything started going into Misc. Just kidding, but as big as it is I know Alix is right and it was easier to do this way.
