For those suggesting an Off Topic board, Susan I/S explained why that didn't work in the past and is unlikely to happen in the future in the Fundraising Post:
"Splitting things off into categories doesn't work well. By keeping everything together it gives people a chance to find something they wouldn't seek out. It also has the propensity of dividing the community"https://www.exmormon.org/phorum/read.php?2,2241026,2241977#msg-2241977
(Her whole post is very interesting btw, it answers the questions about pictures, PM's, and other updates to the board software.)
Personally, I feel like the admin's have enough on their plates with this board alone. Trying to moderate an Off topic board with volunteer, part time admins sounds like a nightmare to me. If you think the admins are having a hard time keeping up with the issues on this one board, expanding things only compounds the issues and the work they would have to do.
There are plenty of places where people can discuss "Off topic" things on the internet. It is the internet after all, there's a place to discuss pretty much anything someone would want to. I personally don't think this one board needs to be everything for everyone, it just can't be that.
