Half the topics on this message board are in fans, which most are useless, asking random stuff. I know that the Fans section is for that...but really? I know I'm not the only one who is thinking this.
I hear ya.
The Fans section *as I understand it* IS for sharing things that are off topic with the main theme of the site to see if others like the same thing*i.e. who likes LotR, non-SW games and books, etc.* and also for us to get to know each other better *threads like 'How old are you, pics of yourself, etc.*
HOWEVER, the total randomness and 'off the wall' topics that are getting thown onto the boards ever Single DAY is really getting on everybody's nerves. And as Fett_II pointed out, not only are the threads often totally random, they are many times threads that ask questions that are already up! That's even more annoying.
Why don't you new members who love so much to post on that sort of thing search the old Fans threads and bring them back to life?? There's a ton of great threads that have been burried either because the members at the time had shared their veiws and had nothing more to say at that time, or were just forgoten.
Take the time to think about whether or not the thread you have in mind would bring something interesting to the site before you create it, and at least try to check and see if maybe it's already up
