View Full Version : Would anyone like a section for jokes and humour?

I always enjoy a good laugh, and sometimes at the end of the day its just the thing to relax and get away from fixing other peoples problems.

So I was wondering if anyone would be interested in the idea of a section of the Forum specifically for sharing a joke or a funny story about work or whatever; a place we can go when its not tech or information we're looking for but just some light relief loosely based around the idea of tech humour (or whatever) :)

What do you think?

That's not Technibble Forums > Other Discussions > General Chat ?

Yeah, I think General Chat picks that up well enough. It's not like we've got so many jokes in that forum that there's little else.

I think it would be a great idea. Would make a great release from the daily grind.

I have run a few forums over the years and I found that the more general the forums the better. I worked on (but did not run) one site that went way too far in creating sections, subsections, and sub subsections. Long story short, people really only used the general section and all the other ones died out. I ended up leaving that site because the owner refused to clean it up and it was a nightmare to moderate with spammers about.

Edit: A good way to get more humor would be to start a "Joke thread" in general to encourage people to post jokes in. If it works it will stay at the top of the forum and be a central place for jokes.

This. I dont think there are enough jokes to warrant its own forum. A joke thread in the General forum would be more appropriate.

As much as a I like jokes I have found wherever they are there are problems. What is a joke to one person is offensive to another plus we have different senses of hiumour per country.

you could add '[Joke]' to the thread title; that way you could put them in the general section but they'd be easy to find/search for

..... They enquired about the bar meals
"20 per head, or 30 for a combo platter"

My wife wanted to know how the laptop got sticky keys.

So I told her to press Shift 5 times.
