Threads don't have to always be about big stories, original articles, or putting a topic out there for discussion, they can be about a funny vine/video/photo, the latest NUFC periscope, or a snippet of info that you've come across. By giving your post a thread more people will see and reply to it, and you don't needlessly derail or confuse an existing thread.
When making these threads, please be sure to name it properly.
