Hey Everyone,

Recently I'm seeing an increasing number of non-laser related things in the B/S/T.

Just take a look at the top 5 threads in the B/S/T right now:

3/5 of them are not laser related.

The B/S/T is the largest section of the forum with over 130k posts, and it would be nice to keep it clean.

What I suggest is adding a second B/S/T, in the off-topic section for everything non-laser related, with the same rules as the current B/S/T (with the minimum post rule)

Agree? Disagree? Vote above!
Other ideas? Discuss!

Sounds like a good idea. I'd be for it. :D Add it to the Off Topic area while enforcing the same rules as the main B/S/T section.

Good idea ARG, I agree, create a separate B/S/T section! :)

I think it should be a split subforum, one with just lasers and one with everything else :p not sure on the specifics of how that would work, but at least it would still let the forum members easily know what's up for B/S/T at the moment

dude thats exactly what the OP is saying :thinking:

one B/S/T in the laser section and one B/S/T in the off topic section for non-laser items= split B/S/T sections

Dave allowed it and it exploded.

I agree with another section, but if not, there's always that option.

Oh well.
Lets read the section name and description.

"Buy, Sell, & Trade"

Buy, sell, and trade lasers and/or laser pointers. Minimum 20 laser related posts required before thread creation.

What I mean is... under "Buy, Sell, and Trade" there are two paths... one for specifically laser-related BST, and one for non-laser-related BST. But both are still under the BST section of the Forum

I was saying non-laser related stuff goes on ebay.

Although the option of another section/subthread is better.

that would be a sub-sub-section then. B/S/T would be the sub-section and then laser related would be one sub-sub-section and non-laser stuff would be another sub-sub-section. im not sure if this is an options on the current server but cant speak on that since i dont know.

plus IMO it needs to be two separate places. we dont have the general section and then under it two sub sections; laser related and other. we have the other section for a reason, if you dont want to see non-laser stuff you never will but if you do, then its there. this is a laser community first and foremost so no need to make this a general community. however i know laser people do like things other than laser so hence the smaller other sections
