Hey folks, a reminder for everybody, including myself:
It's cool to get conversations going in various threads, but when somebody makes a fanpost (or even main page post) the discussion should basically revolve around that post's topic. Little side quips are fine every once in a while, but lately it's starting to be a guessing game whether you're going to read anything at all relating to the post at hand.
I understand completely that humor is a big part of the equation here, especially in the off-season. I also understand that these familiar conversations contribute to a feeling of family and being at home here. Both of those are good. I, myself have engaged in as much silly comment banter lately as I have serious responses. But not every thread should divert into those.
A reminder also that the daily "Junk Drawer" fanpost is there for exactly this purpose.
