@B6ka A more favorable way of thinking about this is, if a conversation about FlashPunk organically (that's the key) turns into a discussion about the best kind of corn (candy, FYI), it's totally fine to talk about it; however, posting a topic like, "What is your favorite kinds of corn?" aren't the topics we're looking for here.
I think the biggest problem with the forum is that we've strived to make it a very friendly, helpful, accessible place, so people enjoy coming here and asking questions, knowing they won't get trolled out of here by jerkensteins. When people enjoy spending time with pleasant people, they naturally want to socialize. That said, you wouldn't go to StackOverflow and ask a question about costume ideas, because that site is, very clearly, a place to ask questions about programming.
This forum is a resource — a very chill, enjoyable resource — for discussing FlashPunk. People come here looking to do that, and if it's difficult for a new visitor to find interesting or helpful discourse on the topic of FlashPunk, the whole community suffers.
