So I've been on the forums for about 3 months now, and I've posted, give or take, 125 times. I check for new threads and everything every day. But there is one evil that threatens to engulf the vine.

Posts in the wrong forum.

For example, if I wanted to talk about the Venom Symbiote and it's appearance in New Avengers this month, I have a number of options.

1) New Avengers Forum

2) Venom Forum

3) Symbiote Forum

Topics such as 'Comic Movies' or 'Clark's Bar and Grill' belong in "General Discussion"

Unfortunately, WWE, non-comic-related video games, etc. belong in the "Off Topic" forum.

If you want to know the outcome of 'Galactus v. Howard the Duck' Try "Battles"

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

(sorry, this has been ticking me off lately)

This has been a grumble for me. It also makes it easier to find past threads if they are in the right place. Like I just dug out an old Darkness thread rather than start a new one. Where was it? On the Darkness' page. People tend to put everything under General discussion.

What are you even talking about? In case you haven't noticed, the tab at the top of the page says "Forums." This is an annoying problem and I applaud him for bringing it to people's attention.

No, but I am the guy running this place right now. If you don't have anything constructive to add to this topic, I don't see what your point is.

Thank goodness someone finally said it! To talk about a character, go to the character's page and there's that character's forums at the bottom of the page. Same for places, concepts, creators etc. Easy to make mistakes and such but it's so good for people to be aware there's more than one option out there :D

Yeah, we should make it more aware that people are free to make topics under whatever they want to talk about. I hate the fact that everything is posted about under Gen. Discussion. For example, that Superman hate thread; as if we had enough of those but to be in the Gen. Discussion. Is it so hard to put it under Superman?

I think Clark's Bar and Grill should be under Off-Topic. It's more of a chat thread and really has nothing to do with comics or this site.

There's always going to be areas where judgment is needed. Symbiote seems more general, etc. Just decide what is best for your topic.

I know I'm bad for just going into general than looking for the character, topic, etc.

Can the topics be moved? The original poster could be notified.

Too bad he made the same (slightly funny with time. He posted it several times after being hinted to stop, it was kinda funny) French joke several times.
