I tought this was an inclusive and open community.. anyway, qgil makes valid point.

I don't know about you guys but I don't come to this forum to read about windows phones. I really wouldn't mind some heavy handed moderation to keep those discussions where they belong be it off topic, competitors or whatever. The same goes all thread highjacking not just the wp stuff.

I had this problem since some time but it is hits me now even more since so many stuff is moved to offtopic...

I filter often worth-reading-posts by searching for posts with a high amount of thanks. Since they are deactivated in offtopic could we please change this behavior now finally?

In my opinion there is no need to deactivate the thanks button in the offtopic forum and it hurts more than it helps.

Maemomd, by "here" do you mean this thread? We don't really need those posts in a Community thread either. This is why I'm proposing to choose an existing thread in Competitors or to create a new one there.
No, I meant whatever thread you proposed, sorry for the confusion. Too many threads are being jacked by nonMaemo members at this point. I wish the admin could sanction these disruptive members or ban them altogether. Up to them though.

The solution is for participants to be civil, mature and on-topic as much as can be reasonably expected. When I say that, note that I've always been a supporter of occasional deviations that let a thread "breathe" or defuse tensions... as long as the thread returns to something productive. Unfortunately, some posts act like a cancer cell and if they resonate with enough participants, it's off to Off Topic the thread ends up going once the cancer spreads. I don't like it, but sometimes there's no other recourse.

Sorry, but exactly where are the countless Lumia discussions that apparently are flooding this board?

So far I haven't seen a single one, but I guess that's just me

As noted, moved. See Off Topic for at least one. Don't be confused by thread titles, though (which should give you a hint)
