Off topic stuff

@Chaboi_3000 is this allowed
hello guys this is where you can say stuff that is off topics and about your every day lives! So have fun with this new off topic stuff! :space_invader: :space_invader: :space_invader: :

I think this might be ok, but I seem to remember Chaboi suggesting discord for off topic things (after nick said something about it),
Maybe put off topic stuff there:
Codecombat discord!
Danny

but some people cannot get discord so i have this topic for them to chat about nothing

@Deadpool198 try out this python pong game

Yes, I am one of those people who cannot get discord. I appreciate the sentiment @ZAX155, but I don’t think this is completely necessary.

@TheBredMeister
sure it is and if it isn’t please tell me why?

I specifically created the Discord for the sake of moving all off-topic threads there. Until I create an off-topic category, please refrain from posting any off-topic content unless in the Discord.

Any further off-topic discussions can now be moved here #off-topic.
