The Official 'official' Thread

Wed Aug 10, 2005 1:00 am

There have been many 'official' threads recently, I was wondering what makes them official? And is this 'official' thread official or unofficial?

To achieve 'official' status does some sort of official 'official' official need to officialise it?

It's pretty much self-gloss by the thread starter to indicate that he or she was the first to post such a wonderful topic. He or she expects the topic will be so popular that another member is likely to start another thread on the same topic. This way, when the mods delete duplicate threads, the "official" thread is more likely to be retained, thereby fueling said thread starter's ego.

AMEN!!! I have been bothered by this for some time. I am tired of all the "official" threads that are out there, as if they somehow merit more attention than others.

If there is ever a petition to eliminate threads that are "official" I will be the first to sign.

It's just an additional word in the thread title for christ's sake  crazy 

How badly can the word "official" be bothering you!?

Which is why I asked, how do I get it officialised into an official thread? I think that somehow by putting the word 'official' into the title more people may look at it.

it´s just that we can concentrate on one thread, insetead of everybody possting lots of threads for the same thing, like Friday´s stupid thread, or somewhere A.net Meet, or the official we love Erik William thread, can you imagine more than one We Love Erik William thread, there would be no more aviation discussion.

Ahhh, dammit. In that case this thread should be called 'the unoffical official thread'. But then no-one would read it. Oh well, can't blame a man for trying.
