Just wondering what people think the point of the Forum is.
For me, I think it should serve any one of three purposes:
1 To share useful information (e.g. IPO listings)
2 To help each other/ask for help (whether it be player tips or trading techniques, etc)
3 To be entertaining
If a post hits all 3, that's the holy grail.
Several threads have become arguments recently or the same points have been made over and over. Some of it really has me scratching my head trying to work out what the purpose of some of the posts has been. Player tips seem to be a bit thin on the ground and I'm longing for a good pump!
If it's not useful information or funny, I've definitely reached the point that I don't want to read it. Do we think we can strive to get the Forum back to these values or am I missing the point as to what it's for?
And before someone says what purpose did this boring message serve, it's a vague effort to encourage people to look at what they've been posting and to think about what they are positively adding to the Forum. Let's stop deliberately picking fights and start helping each other again. I've gained so much from the Forum in the past and we can all make it be a fantastic place again.
