Reword “Pointless”

(1) In-game name & Steam ID: Lyla

(2)Your suggestion: Reword the “pointless” section under general discussions.

(3) What made you feel that this change was necessary or would make a great addition: Having a section called “pointless” isn’t professional imo. It’s also tilting when you have to post under there, just call it something else if possible. I couldn’t come up with a different name, I’m still thinking about it. 

(4) List what you think (if any) could be possible negatives if your suggestion were to be added: Idk, forum staff would need to spend their time thinking about this.

Valueless, senseless, needless, ludicrous etc. I can't write more words. +1 totally needs to get changed. I agree with Lyla.

It's a double entendre,

not only does it not mean anything, so it is pointless,
but it also doesn't provide points, hence point less.

-1 no need to change it

'it needs to be more professional'

In what way? if by that standard we need to make it 'more professional' then all threads under it should be moderated so that they are reviewed and ensure that the forums look 'professional'

I'm sorry, but that argument doesn't hold weight if by large it's a section that doesn't do anything, doesn't get moderated, and to a small extent, let any thread be posted. 'off topic' isn't professional, why are we having discussions that don't relate to our forum? also what is the limit to off topic, what happens if you make a harry potter, clone wars, or halo reference in there, does it suddenly become topical due to that?

like if you honestly made a thread that said you eat while you play hogwarts, and are keen to eat more food when you play in the future, should it be in GD? It's on topic for hogwarts, and it's not off topic, it relates to the server. But it doesn't serve much of a purpose, as it doesn't tell us anything, hence it could be 'pointless' as it doesn't need to be discussed for the sake of discussion nor does it serve a purpose.

Uh.. I mean you could name it random or something?
Friendly gud boi back at it again

That’d be great. 

@Oliver Dragon-Inkarna No, not random. 
@alex (3) your suggestions won’t make sense either.
Thank you all for the feedback

edit: @Tom Aeternalis-Savage that’s exactly what i want

Neutral to +1
I do like Seraphin’s idea of renaming it. As long as it has that “pointless” emphasis of point farming, I would be on board with it.

I agree with Lyla on how it being 'Pointless' seems. Seraphins idea of naming it 'Off Topic Discussions' seems much more professional.

Neutral to -1. There is a reason why it is called “pointless” and it is not a necessary change.
