    Hi all,
    I want to talk about a problem which in my mind slowly but surely becomes more and more prominent on this forum: highjacking of threads.
    What that is you ask?
    At least for me, this is the usage of a thread with a certain topic to ask questions of a totally different topic, for whatever reason.
    2 examples:
    1 - the thread where one community member asked about how a route is created. A very nice thread, very informative and Matt answered a lot of really interesting questions about route building. And at this point, someone comes along, quotes Matt and instantly asks about whether there will be a DLC for LIRR or not.
    This question does not have anything to do with the thread at all and is simply asked because Matt has been seen in this thread.
    Pleas don't do this, use the appropriate places in the forums for this!
    2 - the constant asking about an M3 also for LIRR. As soon as a thread is about the LIRR, people will come and tell how much needed an M3 is. We get it, you want that DLC very much. But please, don't use every single thread you can get for this topic. Make a new one in the appropriate places or use existing ones with the correct topic.

    What do you say? Am I right or simply nitpicking?
    (also sorry for spelling errors, mobile and so on..)

    That's it from me for the moment, also this was kind of a little rant :D
