Is there an appropriate place/way to share non-gymnastics related information that might be of interest to the people here? I came across a story I’d like to share but it doesn’t belong on any of the boards.
This is currently being discussed with Gymnaverse @staff.
I think an off topic forum is a bad idea. In the wwgym days it lead to a particular political narrative that was apparent amongst the gymnastics discussion too.
I am a soccer fan as well as gymnastics, so for that, I am over at bigsoccer dot com. That board has gotten massive, and a big part of that is off topic areas. On one hand, I really like knowing the most I can about my fellow posters. On the other hand, as @MaryClare is pointing out, certain folks literally define themselves by their politics.
In theory, I love the idea of an off-topic section, but I haven’t really looked at the mod profile section yet, so I have no clue how many there are. This could get overwhelming.
Cool, thanks. That said, if it’s too much of a hassle or seems like a bad idea then no worries. I was just wondering.
If it’s marginally gymnastics related, just post it in the general gymnastics category, and we’ll give it a shot.
Otherwise, we do want to keep the discussion gymnastics focused for now, both for (re)establishing identity and to simplify moderating a bit.
BTW, thank you for bring up the question. These things are worth questioning, and we may realize later we should change gears. @Sasha
Ok… so I just need to figure out how the Mandalorian relates to gymnastics before season 3 comes out (think that was my only shot right there… unless the Gymnaverse expands so far that we run into Grogu).
If we could find the child, we could invite him to join the forum (mission 3).
Maybe he could use the force to fix Larissa’s ankle.
Next time we have a major plague and have to spend a lot of time at home, I recommend opening an off topic section or thread to talk about our feelings.
NEXT time? Oh lawd, can’t we finish this plague before we start talking about the next one?
Why not two or more at once?
