If they're supposed to encourage device forum people out, they need to do a much better job. Most people in these threads don't have the device anyway, so why is it that device's watering hole at all? They're just one long, off-topic thread. If someone wants to talk about star wars with someone who may or may not have the same device as them, why is that not a thread in it's own right?
I see them as pointless and aggravating. Every time I scroll past one, a little piece of me inside dies. It's fine that you don't see whats hard about that. That's your prerogative. But I have been objective about this and put myself in the shoes of those who do use them, when creating this thread so I would kindly ask that you at least try the same.
