At least some have to do with music.

Licorice?The moon?

Please keep it mostly musical if not Stones.

Occasion lapses are okay.

If in doubt, refer to bv.

I'm sorry, Elmo, I've read your post several times and I don't see what it has to do with why the new album isn't being released tomorrow.

...unless you mean they can't finish it because of the OT threads! Well done!

The Stones aren't doing anything. We need to talk about something.

Hey guys, Elmo Lewis is unhappy with the current state of this forum. Let's all change it so he can be happy, okay?

Exactly. I don't understand this mindset at all.

I know bv wishes for this board to remain primarily about the Stones, but how the hell are we supposed to endlessly dissect a band that's already been dissected down to the note?

Bingo! It's symptomatic of when The Stones aren't touring, releasing a new album etc and there's not much happening that the quality of the threads start to take a downward turn and we get posts about Charlie's sister, Keith's shirts, re-imagined track listings and the Moon landing. eye rolling smiley

Rene's Track Talk is a saviour indeed but in general you sometimes think people are just dredging up something to put on the board for the sake of eating up cyberspace. smiling smiley

In fourteen years I've only started one thread; announcing the death of Charlton Heston and it started a riot. Hauw!

I like the off topics personally. For me there's more to life than The Stones. Plus it's nice to know and share thoughts about other things. However, when there's important Stones Info I believe that has priority. For the moment there isn't much of that.

Here too.

But, to get back on topic: It's been a long time since we last scrutinized Ronnie's hair or Keith's ear gear e.g.

Isn't that something?

The moderator told us this:-

Off topic posts
IORR is a board dedicated to The Rolling Stones and related topics. Still, other interesting topics may be accepted at times, as long as they are not offending, and as long as there are not too many of them at any time. Make sure you mark your Off Topic post with "OT:" in the subject field. In order to keep the OFF TOPIC number low - after all this is a ROLLING STONES board, not Facebook or Twitter, the IORR Editor will simply remove a lot of the Off Topic posts when they show up. Please do not post off topic, unless it is very important to a lot of us, or interesting in general. Please no more "see me playing in my band" or other types of me-centric posts. Simply too many off topics. Also, boring stuff like food and meal discussions, they are not rock'n'roll, please don't post, they are off topic and will be deleted. Thanks for your understanding.


I know bv's closely following everything that's going on here. And I trust he'll step in as soon as he sees the need to. Why don't we just let him do his job?

But really, Elmo, please do mark your post "OT" as that's the No. 1 rule in this subject matter of OT posts. And, nobody else can do that for you except bv himself.

In the last resort - in case you keep dissatisfied, which I won't hope - you can report this thread to bv by using the Report This Message button at the bottom of each post.

For the rest and in case of any further doubt please check here: [iorr.org] for Forum Help and Policies.

We could debate Micks hair again and whether he has implants or not, but that's already been beaten to death with no definitive answer!
Or maybe Keiths new set of teeth...which aren't really new any more - maybe some predictions on when he'll get a new set?
Or Bill being airbrushed out for no good reason...
Or another Mick Taylor vs. Ronnie Wood...
Or Darryl or Chuck as official members...
Or the fact that no news is good news...
Or Beatles vs. Stones...
Or...

For the sake of compliance, let's just assume that the subject of every OT thread, like Frosty the dead dog who isn't really dead (thank God), is wearing Rolling Stones sunglasses or other on topic apparel.

OT threads about other bands are not all that OT, to me.

Threads about ridiculous bullshit like moon conspiracies do not belong, but BV took care of that.


Look at it this way OT means don't read it. Problem solved.

Would a new thread about a zombie-looking, licorice-eating, Bob Dylan-loving, torch-carrying dog rising up from the Pet Cemetery on Halloween during the first inning of Game 7 of the World Series to the tune of Sympathy for The Devil be considered "OT" or not?

For the record, this potential new thread would have nothing to do with ELO.

Off topic posts will be closed if there are too many of them. I have already closed one this week. There will be more. No offense, nothing personal, but we don't really need to discuss everything here. After all IORR is a site dedicated to the Stones.

I don't want to see Jethro Tull and other OT stuff on top of the IORR forum pages, so I made the two most important theads sticky.

Good for you BV , As this is all about our favorite band -The Rolling Stones !

Re: Too many OT threads

I think its also very clear that the OT threads are opinions and topics that relate to people that like the Stones. Its a lot of other band stuff, and people that listen to the Stones probably also listen to or have an opinion about Jethro Tull, ELO, etc. So to me its always made perfect sense to start OT threads here because I'm curious what other Stones fans would think about Neil Young or other life things.

hmm, makes me wonder if they will do autopsies on the Stones when their time comes.

Respectfully, that was my first reaction as well.
Technically speaking; it would have that OT designation.
That's my side of the debate anyway.
After I win, I'll take the other side.
After I win the other side.
I'm forming a committee to address the webmaster formally.
There will be sign-up sheets, electronic of course, I'll keep ypu posted.
I'm going to have to delegate a lot of this to staff, but I promise
to keep a close eye on things.
also, so that this post is "stones related," I'd like to say are actually
still a very cool bunch of cats. thank you.
