French Car Chat Forum

Post by GiveMeABreak » 25 Aug 2017, 13:05

The 'French Car Chat' Forum has now been renamed to ' The Off Topic Chat Lounge'.

There have been no changes to the existing topics or posts. It was just felt that there needed to be a place for posts that did not fit into any of the other categories and to encourage posts of a more general nature to be posted here instead of in the technical forums.

What will happen to any posts placed in there that are deemed to be on-topic?

I can see a bit of a paradox forming though. If you post something that is off topic, then it will be - by definition - on topic for the off topic lounge and therefore not suitable. If, however, you post something that is on topic, then -again - it's not suitable for the off topic lounge. :rofl2:

Nothing Paul

We don't have anywhere to put 'general' posts and rather than create a new forum just for that the team thought it better to use the French Car Chat Forum and rename it.

The post was tongue in cheek (where's the smiley for that?) Marc. Bobbins has cottoned on to the catch-22 situation though.

Well, West Wales is getting a lot wetter than normal, because of a mysterious flood that has weather forecasters baffled. Reading this thread would have been highly illuminating.
