Why is this forum full of threads that fit in other subforums?

I see TV threads, cooking threads, decorating threads, pet threads beauty threads, health, general home stuff.

because it is community chat!  There have been posters here who have been posting for years together and going into other forums splits it up.  Plus, other forums & subforums have off topics as well. 

 

People will post with whom they feel most comfortable with - I don't see it as an issue

Viewpoints was always a mixed bag. I used to wonder why the celebrity gossip and the housewives shows weren't over in Entertainment...shrug. The good thing is we have new people posting.

What difference does it make?    (sound familar?)    The old forum always mixed subjects up and floated everything around.  I like the 'mix it up" cuz fashion alone is rathr boring and kitchen alone is boring.........................I nver did understand all the sub-title choices, appears to be over the top for this site.

As others have said, Viewpoints was the same way.  It, and now this forum, receive the most traffic so misc. threads are started here.

 

A good board moderator (or their team) would move them to the proper forum but..........

It's always been this way.  I guess we notice it more when it's full of things we have no interest in.
