    IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT


    It has come to our attention that the misuse of the Random Thoughts Thread has led us to making this decision

    The RTT is not a chat box and thus should not be used as one. Prolonged conversations would be better held in private, on a chat app or through DMs.

    Some users are also posting member/EXO posts here in the RTT when the main EXO thread and member threads exist. It is much preferred if users move EXO-related discussion to their respective threads. The main thread and member threads is where anything EXO/member related can be discussed and is not limited to discussions about schedules/activities.

    After much discussion and debate, the admin and moderator team have decided to lock and archive the current thread and start a completely new Random Thoughts Thread with stricter rules.

    3 days from now we will be permanently closing this current thread. We are sorry if this decision might dissatisfy any of you, we value your opinion so if you have any concerns regarding this issue then feel free to DM one of us.

    What happened earlier was a misunderstanding between staff and therefore no proper announcement was made prior to the closure of the thread.

    One could say a random thoughts thread is a big old chatbox, it's just not in a smaller frame. I didn't even know that would be a problem? What made it a problem to this extent?

    I'm pretty awkward too lol
    It's as you say, everyone is popping in and out of there... and I agree to the responses, it's great to get them. No one is obligated, but they do anyway and it makes it nicer.
    A forum is basically a stream of open-ended chats
    I'm not for or against RTT being archived, but I'm curious as to why it's come to this point where there needs to be an official announcement because I think a random thought can easily lead into an unintentional discussion about a member/exo/otherwise. It can't really be helped
    I think about alternatives like DMing, and that can come with "how do I continue/end this conversation" and I'm too awkward for that lol

    It makes sense since the RTT has quickly turned into a sub forum on its own, and cos of that, people have been posting in official threads less, and creating less threads, which is not good for the forum in the long run. I understand the decision.

    The whole point of the thread was post about random things and the staff didn't really expect for users to start making conversations with each other. At first we thought it was okay for people to chat, but then an excessive amount of quoting between users happened which led to prolonged conversations

    Yes

    Like excessive quoting with other users and having a full on conversation ... it's fine to quote each other, but I've seen that users back to back quote each other which creates conversations. We'll be suspending people from the new thread if they misuse it

    IMO there should be more than one official threads made to replace rtt. The staff would obviously be better at coming up with ideas (because I dumb) but I’d suggest these

    - thread ideas thread. For people who are too shy to make a thread. They can just share the idea/topic and one of the nicer av users can start the discussion instead ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ idk

    - random THOUGHTS thread but quoting isn’t allowed (or there is a limit)

    - random discussion thread but liking or talking about exo isn’t allowed

    - Kevin antis thread

    - thread where you can have a general discussion about other (kpop or otherwise) artist’s music. Just music

    - Share Something You Found Funny thread

    Flop ideas but anyway. /chenheart

    As someone who used to post a lot in the rtt I can see why it would get deleted in the first place but at the same time I’ve made lots of new friends on av because of that thread. I really missed posting in that thread a lot and I was planning on coming back once school was finished for Christmas but now that I’m seeing this I’m sad to see it go but I hope you guys can clear things out as soon as possible

    All of this.
    What's wrong about conversations? Isn't that the purpose of a forum? That's the way we make friends. I don't think only sharing superficial stuff like "oh he looks so hoooooot" or "i love this song so much" could lead to the friendships we have.
    I like this idea.

    I think the main issue is that the other threads aren't as active? Esp when we keep quoting one another about exo stuff on rtt instead of doing it on the main threads(s).

    I get that but at least it keeps the forum alive and tbh.... Who would visit every main thread in the forum? Exo are 9 members and they have 3 ex members. That's quite a lot of people to catch up on. Having new threads would be nice tho as when they appear we know something important must be going on and it's not just appreciation posts and a couple convos.

    if you don't want to check every exo member thread that's fine and i totally accept your decision. But don't go claiming that other users wouldn't when we do know that they have done it in the past. Also if you can't go to every members thread, the least you can do is go to EXO's MT
    --- Post merged---
    you can have a conversation just as well on EXO's Main Thread

    I didn't intend it to sound like they couldn't, I meant that to expect that is a bit too much.
    wouldn't it be the same?

    it's justifiable to expect that much from our users, I mean you guys are the one who joined the forum knowing all the different threads on the site. It's your choice whether or not to visit all the threads, but it would be appreciated if you guys do.

    As well as it being the same, it would be better to have the most active thread on the site be the main thread and not a random thread
