|I just now discovered that the thread, O-T Junction in the Adeniums forum was moved to the Sandbox.|
Does this mean that threads that are off-topic within a particular forum will also be moved? Here are a couple of off-topic threads:
OT - The Porch Swing ... Day Lilies forum
Midatlantic Pets ... Midatlantic Gardening forum
Or is O-T Junction being singled out??

|Hmm, it was proposed to be moved, and I approved the proposal without giving it much thought since it was clearly off topic.|
I don't mind moving it back to Adeniums if you'd like.

|Hmmm, I would never have found it in Adeniums. I saw the thread in the Sandbox and posted a question.|

|Yes, please do move the thread back to the Adeniums forum, Dave. Other forums have off-topic threads within so I feel this one should be allowed to continue.|
There are members who do not venture outside their comfort zone, as in the forum or thread they favor. The off-topic threads allow the members, if they so desire, to have a more close affinity and comfort in sharing with other members within the forum they are comfortable in. Sure, others lurk and that's good, even better if they post.

|Rainbow, what you might want to do is open a specific thread within the Adeniums forum that is clearly just for chatting. That way, no worries about getting off topic. A lot of plant or region specific forums do this.|
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

|Thanks, Deb, for your suggestion.|

|I moved the thread back.|

|Many of the busy forums set up a 'chat' type thread so they can go slightly off topic yet remain in their forum. Maybe the one that proposed the move was not aware of that. It's a nice thing to have.|
