    What makes a thread OFFICIAL?

    Who gets to decide if the thread they start is the OFFICIAL one? Why even put that word in the title? Am I the only one who is bugged by this?

    O'nuts OFFICIAL response post!

    It's an attention grabber, nothing more. People need to be a bit more creative to get me to look at their threads however, because when I see OFFICIAL, I usually move on(.org)

    Yes, you are.

    But just look at it this way, this is the "Official, What makes a thread OFFICIAL?" thread.

    Just MHO, YMMV

    Doesn't bother me. I'll read a thread if the subject interests me, and if it doesn't, I just ignore it. I think there are bigger things in life to worry about than how something is titled on a message board.

    The "Official" in a subject line doesn't tend to catch my attention. However, I am always happy to see "Unrated Deluxe Director's Cut."

    Re: What makes a thread OFFICIAL?

    I'm with you on this one. When I see the word 'Official' in any thread, it drops the IQ of the thread down several notches, much like some accents.

    I also find when I see that word in the thread, it is often followed by some pretty intense spelling errors, which really lends to a solid thread.

    It's the same person that decides which
    items should be listed as "RARE" on ebay.
