To be honest, I like to think that repeated threads happen because so many new people are joining BGG.

It doesn't help that so many places complain when you search and bump old content and tell you to start a new duplicate thread instead. shake

There's not "that" much to talk about.

I like board games. Me too.

Cool.

There are only a few topics that we just rotate through. The General Gaming Forums usually contain the following topics or something like them at any given time.

Luck and strategy are diametrically opposed!
Ameritrash is offensive. Discuss!
What game is underrated/overrated?
If you had to tunnel to the core of the Earth and could only pick 5 games to take with you, which 5 games would they be?
Help, I'm buying too many games!
I have someone in my group who is really annoying and pretty much makes all game nights unfun. What should I do?
This game's artwork offends me. Discuss!
When do you think Half-Life 3 will come out? It looks rad!
This company on KS is screwing everybody over!
What is the ideal thickness of a meeple? (with POLL!)
You should never play to win, only to have fun!
Hey, here's a flowchart that helps you choose a board game!

You forgot, "Will my girlfriend like Twilight Struggle (the only games she's played before are Tic Tac Toe and Sorry)"

and "BGG Finances" (this one is seasonal).

That doesn't seem like particularly valuable advice... because you didn't bother repeating it.

Don't forget "My significant other hates boardgames. What game will change her mind?"

All possible threads have already been written. We're just copying established themes over and over again.
