What was this all about "Off Topic" being a cause for so much upset.
If you checked the forum stats, OT has the highest number of posts of all subforums by far. 189488 posts followed by the General subforum of AOE3 legacy with 109459 posts.
And that's taking into account how its position in the forum layout has been gradually pushed lower and lower, as new forum sections have been added.
And how the most recent posts from OT were not displayed by default in the homepage sidebar, it was an opt-in.
It seems like every effort has been made to make OT as invisible as possible, because some touchy users were too flustered by opinions they couldn't handle.
And despite all that, OT still comes on top as the subforum with most posts ever on this site.
Every gaming forum eventually either survives in its offtopic section or it doesn't survive.
ESOC has made its choice.

You also need to calculate roughly 44k of strategy, 33k of esoc patch discussion, 6k of treaty, 8k of user created content, roughly 32k of aoe 3 de (general + strategy) and roughly 3k of aoe 4. So that is roughly 126k more
Fine line to something great is a strange change.

General also still has more active users in likelihood. OT also has lot of useless and multiple posts like sand in teeth stuff. Or Ear just replying ok. Or cheddar cheese spamming wood. OT has like 10-15% good posts, 5% meaningless attacks on me, and 80-85% spam or shit posts.

Yea but imagine how many more posters there are outside the Off-Topic. Off-Topic posters are basically sporty posters.

OT is the working class. Keeps the economy afloat but is routinely underappreciated and always pays the price when there are problems
