I thought the same thing. It's easy to miss the threads if you don't come here daily. Hopefully someone can sticky the thread. There have been many OT threads lately.

I know that Wendy recommends not starting new OT threads but is it okay to reply to OT threads that already exist?

The thread is stickied. That makes two stickied threads about OT. I don't think people pay much attention to stickied threads.

You're probably right because someone else just posted another OT thread.

Maybe the sticky note needs to be in ALL CAPS.

If you use the New Post functionality, you never see the stickies. I'm just sayin...

I'm of mixed thoughts about this topic. I agree that the OT threads need to be cut down. However, in recent months, I have seen so many threads marked as OT that aren't. They are about fitness or health or some related topic. They may not be about a video workout, but they are still on topic. Is it just me?

That wouldn't help. I am usually reading quickly and on the run. I apologize, I had not seen the post.

I agree, Laura. I see tons of threads listed as OT that I believe are definitely on-topic. Anything health and wellness related is on-topic.
