Can it be moved to another section as it has absolutely nothing to do with Pompey?
Is there a section for games??
Couldn't agree more, as suggested in my post earlier in this thread: "Personally, I'd rather it was moved off the 'Pompey General Chat' and given it's own heading, like the La La League, etc."

I rarely contribute to it but when it’s quiet it shows some of us are still alive. I suspect if moved it will see much less action. I’d leave things as they are.

Yes indeed. Let's put everything that is not totally on topic into a separate bin, shall we? And you can be the monitor for this. Perhaps change your name to Betelgeuse Monitor Police. (for the record I am saying this tongue in cheek - joking, though I am serious about this next bit)
Seriously the Word Association thread is just harmless fun. It hurts nobody, there is no malice involved. It keeps this community ticking along when there are no other posts. In its way, it stops this board from stagnating. There have been many off-topic threads that have helped to enliven discussion, or assist posters with problems, to some these have been a welcome diversion away from general boredom. Each has naturally reached the end of its relevance, however, the Word Association thread has continued as it remains relevant.
It may annoy you and I would ask you politely to put that annoyance to one side. Please post more Pompey-related threads. If there are loads more interesting topics to participate in then the relevance of the Word Association thread will wane and then drop off the first screen. This happened before when there were many more Pompey-related threads and could happen again.
To relegate it to a sub-page is not the answer.

Perhaps we could retire it on its tenth birthday.
We could give it a little send off. Maybe a bugle player could be brought in for a rendition of The Last Post and we could all remember how exciting it got in its heyday when Jacketball was the alternative.

Would love to see it compulsory for all posters to post at least one word each week on the Word Association thread, but with enhanced rules and penalties.
The new rule is that each word used could never be repeated and your association with the previous word has to be explained if challenged.
The penalty being electric shock treatment if you inadvertently repeated a word or failed to explain the association sufficiently to satisfy the mods.
That would relieve any boredom :thumb

Dear Sleepy Joe, being an avid conspiracy theorist I note that your avatar is of the previous incumbent. Are you Donald in disguise?

Fair point! :)
I suppose the bother Pompey boards I've been on have been a lot busier than this one. Maybe they have more members.
