Default Chat Threads that shouldnt exist

OK, MTF is getting slower and slower, I dont know if it's a problem of bandwidth, but if it is maybe you should get rid of some Chat Threads like:

Number Game and 1million to 1 - seriously, what's the point? people posting numbers to increase thier post count

The Name Game, the Place Name Game and The Song name Game (Tennis Player Wordsnake might enter here also) - I take the last letter of a place name and I write another place starting with that letter. How good I am! Boring

The Last One to Post Wins - Ok, I admit, I have posted there a lot before but I was trying to take it in another direction rather that posting "I am winning" or a boring smiley

Comment on the avatar (also Comment on the Signature which is not Chat Thread yet) - I dont think any comment is neccessary. just the idea is dumb itself

The Person Above You - we've had enough of ass-kissing, dont you think?

I really dont mind, I have the option to not click there, but if it's because of useless posts that we have to wait 2 minutes to load a page I say "Take them all down"

Thank You

I take your point - but then again you could make a case for all the chat threads to disappear as well. I think it would be a dangerous precedent to set if some of the chat threads get deleted.

On second thought maybe not all chat threads, Adam's has to stay otherwise there would be no other way to take the piss out of him

come on, you cant compare threads where people talk and get to know each other with threads where Daniel posts a number every 7 seconds

But for Daniel posting numbers is as important as breathing. Maybe he wouldn't survive it.

I think the point here is what you consider meaningful/meaningless may not be the same as others.

maybe getting rid of those threads will make certain members try to post something useful rather than just a number or the name of a city

it's in their benefit

I have a feeling that some posters care about the post number

I'm sure some people don't particularly care about what songs we are listening to right now either

The only REALLY annoying threads in my eyes are the 2 number ones. They are obviously about nothing else but getting someones post count up for some inane reason.

The others are good to relieve boredom and people enjoy them so just let them be!

wrong, that way you can learn a lot about other members' taste and also can broaden your musical horizons (which are pretty narrow here at MTF, if you ask me)
also it's a classic thread in every respectable forum, whereas what I listed in the first post it's plain spam

boredom??? then try to talk to someone, enter in a discussion, even if this discussion is about Teletubbies

IYO it's wrong... but I'm sure a lot of people REALLY don't care about what music you are listening to. Just like you don't care for the other threads

Hard to enter in discussion when the whole place is seemingly dead.
The threads are harmless. If you want to call it spam then fine... but it's spam that a lot of people like so there is not a problem.

As for the number threads well I'd do away with them in an instant but have been advised against it.

I must agree with the fact that both threads are annoying....after I started the Million one I said to myself "what have I done!?! " however, in defence of my baby thread, it was started with one purpose....to reach nº 0..(or 1) so it was meant to be 1,000,000 times annoying, while on the other hand the Number thread does not have any purpose at all, and it could never end
lol....Maybe it's a good idea to get rid of both...
IMO they're harmless, as Peta said, but if they're wasting resources...just delete them....noone will notice....well....yeah, true....maybe Daniel....poor thing

If the number game thread was deleted imagine what Daniel's post count would be afterward.
