Mess Hall... Yeah no wonder that whole discussion went to hell
The name itself could easily subconsciously affect people on what they were writing about on that discussion.
Nvm about that now.
I would myself support such idea if it only would be somewhat easy to follow. I mean the discussion may get clogged up with multiple different dialog real fast, which would make it hard to follow a specific (off)topic. At which point the whole conversation might as well be moved to a private messaging this platform provides.
Also this kind of off-topic forum would easily get overwhelmed by peoples outraged reactions. And as far as I know others opinions is what exactly may trigger this. You never know about it until it's too late, and it will get messy no matter what.
After couple of years of occasional lurking on this forum and this some what half year experience as a member has showed me that there may still be hope for such discussion topic.
I am replying to this just because I was really
surprised to see my username in your mentioned list of "interesting people", Knives. No doubt about Tael and Panzer being some amazing individuals but I'd barely call myself as "intresting"
