This being said, the topic of "General Discussion" PRETTY MUCH encompasses every topic.
So aren't the two forums pretty much the same? Comes down to a personal preference as to where you want to post your spam, IMO
The difference is that GD is supposed to be things that are about LoL, not about just random stuff.

Nope! The "General Discussion" for is in the "League of Legends" category, so it encompasses everything League of Legends.. "League of Legends General Discussion."

Well...

General Discussion - "Discuss League of Legends here"

Off Topic Discussion - "Discuss all things not LoL here"

The descriptions of the forums would seem to make it a fairly cut and dry case, but Pendragon has stated in the past that he wanted general discussion to be a little more than just a run-of-the-mill gameplay discussion forum; he wanted it to have a little community, and a little punch to it. Does pages of trolling, memes, and forum games meet that goal? That falls into the realm of opinion.

Don't mods have the power to move a post? This forum software certainly allows it. Just go through and move posts to off topic that are off topic and be done with it. There could certainly be community moderators (Battleforge, for one, does community moderation) and that would help to make GD a more viable forum.

It might fall in the realm of opinion but if anything is going to make the community a better place it would be a little stricter moderation. Without any sense of punishment the General Discussion forum has looked more like an off-topic jumble of senseless posts than a place where the community can grow and become more acquainted with each other.

People are not mass down voting these threads.

Majority of GD is at a consensus to what they want to see on the forum.

Pretty much, just let the forum decide what it has on it.

Don't mention Dota 2 though. Something news worthy actually related to the genre of this game is off topic. More cats please. And tier lists about baked goods or fresh prince. Those are not worth moving.

you see, if someone without a special colored name made this thread, it'd be downvoted.
