    Default Moderation question

    Staying on topic is never easy. Some boards let things wander alot, while others enforce a strict "focus".

    How "strict" would you like topicality enforcement here to be?

    I find when things get too far off topic they seem to turn into flame wars in short order.

    Thumbs up Re: Moderation question

    I think occasional and good hearted conversation stimulates positive relationships and allows things to sometimes develop that would not in a sterile environment. Pick good moderators who can see IF a need is there to steer it back on topic and allow them to do it within reason. Nobody sits in a business or work meeting time after time without developing some good hearted fun and joking....at least that has been my personal experience

    A lot of subjects can be answered quickly, and then the thread is done. If such a thread strays o/t, why not let it go and promote a fellowship.

    I have no problem if a thread strays slightly especially if a point of view or a comment breaks up the seriousness of daily life.

    If other kenpo fora are any indication, as long as the mods are present and keep order, a little sidebar action here and there is okay with me.
