The general forum is the place to talk about all sorts of general topics. Most of the general chat conversations happen in this forum, along with regional threads, food threads, and other generalized chit-chat. This thread outlines a few of the forum policies that help maintain a smooth and consistent environment. Please also be aware of the community rules and code of conduct policy. If you need to contact a moderator, you'll find an updated list here. Retired Chat Threads We retire threads when they hit 35k posts. This helps keep threads at a reasonable size for optimization reasons. Once a thread hits 35k posts it will be locked and no new posts will be allowed. A new thread can be created and a link to the new thread will be the last post made in the archived thread. We recommend you post a link to the previous threads in the first post of the new thread so people can go back and browse past conversations if they would like. NSFW Threads Threads that contain images, or text, that you believe would not be safe to be viewed in a work environment should be given the NSFW prefix. Prefixes When creating a thread please use the correct prefix if it's needed. This allows for easy sorting and searching for specific items within the forum: NSFW Location Common Threads Food The Beer Thread Drunk Thread The Pet Thread Mental Health Thread The Happiness Thread Dieting & Weight Loss Thread Absurdist Twitter Skincare/Hair/Make-Up/Beauty Thread Vent Your Frustrations The Tattoo Thread Advanced Search Don't forget you can do a deep search of the general forum on our advanced search page.
