COmpletely agree (more on this later)

What's the harm in one off-topic thread per device, letting birds of a feather flock together?

Seems to me that folks that helped one another through rough patches with their devices ought to be able to pal around together once they're past the troubles and questions, yeah?

Every pre-release period has a Lounge-like thread, why move the party?
My issue is it seems like half of the first page of the lounge is 'watering hole' threads. IMO just create a 'Device Watering hole' sub forum in lounge. Yes there wont be many threads in there but to many they are an eye sore in the lounge

That's where they started long ago. Word came down from Admin/Owner to move them out of device sections so as not to promote 'segregation' or 'clique' from forming.

There was several who were against this but eventually me (and others) came to agree that they don't really belong on the device sections.

I see that as being similar to how we close those threads once the device is released. Once device is released its all business in the device section, which is why the 'Lounge' thread gets moved to lounge.

I don't inherently disagree with this but when we start getting 10+ watering holes that are active it really does beg the question, do they need there own section

I think they do...

They people who post in them will still post in them. The only downfall I can see is that those threads will of course be a bit more secluded, less random users will find them and 'connect' with other users discussing whatever phone....
