    Maybe a better way to ask is when you guys are given guidelines as to what constitutes on topic or off topic what are they? that would definitely help posters understand the system
    If a moderator says "get back on topic" that means it's off topic.

    I hope that helps.

    Coach look, this is predominantly a football forum moderated by a bunch of Liverpool fans appointed by Liverpool FC to use our judgement on what we consider appropriate or otherwise with regards to the content of posts and threads. I personally don't have the time, nor the knowledge, to wade through threads containing paragraphs of posts to judge their suitability, nor do I have any inbuilt rules or guidelines; if it looks wrong to me then I bin it and/or infract it if I think its appropriate. That's the way forum moderation works in general and it applies here too. I'm sure there are plenty of places willing to host in-depth discussions on middle eastern policy and politics (or whatever) that offer clearer guidelines and are modded by folks more in tune with the topic but in here you'll have to put up with the decisions made by simpler folk, i.e. if one of us says its OT then it is.

    That might help. So there are no guidelines. Just whatever a moderator says so depending on the moderator one might allow significant deviations from topic but others be incredibly strict?

    That would certainly explain some of the confusion. I do have just one more polite question. What's the point of an Off Topic section if any conversation Off Topic is not allowed?
