Following the recent decision from XDA Moderators to remove OT threads in device forums, they have now been closed.

I have found we can continue discussion here as long as the thread is in the OT forum.

I am creating a OT lounge for fellow DS members to carry on.

Here we go.

EDIT: Since Ben's sanctuary thread has gone too, we have decided to combine them to one thread, instead of creating another thread.


EDIT1: Our BBM group

The off-topic threads have been closed?
That means I need to launch my attack now!

Correct. In all device sub forums the have been closed, however we have been given permission to open them here. I fell disappointed by this decision too.

Hasn't been closed over @ kindle fire yet. Why this decision?

I couldn't agree with you more Oly. I have posted my feelings in both the DS OT threads and hope that they are read by our moderators, even if nothing changes.

This is the worst thing I have known XDA to do yet. The moderators constantly refuse to do anything about the newbies who refuse point-blank to bother searching and then get all upset and aggravated when you tell them to do so, yet they decide to close threads which serve a very useful and valuable purpose on XDA. Putting device-specific threads in the general OT forum just means more chaos - if every device has an OT thread here and they are used regularly then the other OT threads will get hidden 8 pages down the list.

I cannot see a single valid justification for this decision and have just about lost all the respect I once had for the forum moderators.

Your logic is spot on. I'm very disappointed in XDA's decision. There really was no need.

I completely see where you are coming from, the OT forum will now have so many device sub threads everywhere, so other OT threads will be buried... Regular OT members will also be affected by this, with all those extra threads.

Can't express my disappointment enough...

I'm sure a few DS people won't come along, the ones who've already left (enigmaamit etc)

Same?! Where has it gone?!

You mean there's no thanks button in OT?
