We are here to discus our love of boardgames, and nothing else. Anything else is immaterial to that, and we have more appropriate forums for such discussions.

Can I ask that we only discus boardgames here.

You should probably avoid the General Gaming forum. It's become RSP lite lately.

That's a little extreme. Should we delete threads about "little things" that are not related to board games?

I love birds.

... Am I banned?

Who said anything about bans, you can discus birds in Chit Chat.

I support focusing on our common love of gaming. A lot of the discussions that have been going around lately have convinced me that many of us share very different beliefs about many other things... and those discussions have saddened me for all their anger and ignorance and vitriol.

I want to go back to looking down on you people for your poor taste in games, not your misguided worldviews.

But at least I have not dismissed anyone's views as "rather pointless", unlike some.

... And that is why we have special sections of the Forum for other topics.

I do not understand your request. Is there a specific post you feel is not related to boardgames?

I don't see how talking about the board game community, representation in board games, and philosophies underlying game design and theming have nothing to do with board games.

We're joking and kidding.

But I like what you're trying to do.

Let's stop being intolerant and move on.

As I said, we all have only one thing in common, our desire to talk about out love of games, things like boardgame design or community have forums.

https://boardgamegeek.com/forum/1154020/boardgamegeek/boardg...

https://boardgamegeek.com/forum/6/boardgamegeek/chit-chat

It makes it easier if we know where a discussion is (it would be like having a cupboard labeled Cans, but not putting you tins of peas in there as they are vegetables (but putting your tinned carrots there)). We have forums separated for a reason.

The title of the forum is General Gaming, which is a more broad topic than just discussion of the boardgames themselves.

It seems to me that anything associated with gaming in general, certainly experiences of people playing games, are on topic. I don't understand the ire over the mere existence of people wanting to talk about a particular topic related to gaming. If you aren't interested in a thread, it is pretty easy to avoid.

It is not lack of interest, if anything it is the opposite.

As I said this is not the appropriate place to discus such matters.

These are issues that hit on gaming in general. They are fine in "general gaming".

No one ever complains when people keep using this forum to discuss chairs, shelves, or how to deal with someone who spits when he talks. But as soon as someone questions whether their community may need a louder voice in boardgaming some people get up in arms about it.

Odd, as I did in fact say all non gaming related topics.

There is a place to discus these (as with birds) it is Chit Chat.

Wait just one second there. A cupboard is for cups! Cans should go in a canboard!

General Gaming is about things connected to gaming, in general. I think representation within the gaming community fits easily into General Gaming.

RSP is about religion, sex, politics, with no connection to the gaming community. (I love Bernie! I hate Trump! etc, etc)

Chit Chat is just for conversation about whatever, often with no connection to gaming.

Community is about the BGG community specifically. You know, who hates who, who has a crush on who, etc.

What's the big deal? If you don't like a thread, don't read it.

Oh, wait, you're worried these things will take over General Gaming. Not likely. Right now I see a bunch of gaming threads, one thread on representation in gaming (and two threads reacting to that one thread), and some weird thread on lighting (which is actually quite informative).

I don't see a problem. I think the real issue is that a lot of folks who object to conversations about representation in the gaming community just don't like those conversations, period.
