Thread Hijacking

Since we have little formal supervision on the forum how about if all just take a moment to remind one another when we're getting off subject in a thread. No harm, no foul just a friendly reminder that a change of subject might be better in it's own thread. It will make things a lot easier down the road when your trying to find that post on a firing pin spring in a magazine thread.

You are right Chuck. That would be a good idea.

At the rate that this forum is growing trying to find something you read last month is going to be impossible if we continue to allow threads to go off topic. I'm on forums where the search feature is useless because of all the cross posting. What's the sense of having a database of experience and knowledge if you can't find anything in it. I'm not asking anyone to get nasty when a thread is going off topic, just politely suggest that maybe the post would better serve everyone if it were in it's own thread. Members can delete their own posts as long as they are not the start of a thread.

Makes sense to me. I just don't think it will happen.

Yeah, it happens when people get chatty and one comment leads to another. Good for forum morale and growth, but does skew the data. A friendly reminder to return to topic should not be considered offensive.

I've always liked Velveeta and Rotel.

I'll do my best to comply. But, no promises.

This needs to come back to the top. Let's try not to stray to far from Chucks suggestions!

I agree. I've enjoyed and contributed to some of the topics getting sidetracked. However, being a new Kimber (and 1911) owner, the technical threads are helpful to me and easier to find if they stay on topic.
