I don't understand why this topic was moved out of the Console Gaming forum.  This is about renting console games by mail from Blockbuster.

you probably should have put this thread in the Forum Feedback too, since that's where it belongs Tongue  Staff members do not have control on the forums (such as locking, moving threads)

That and I don't really go in this forum mainly because it's for staff members who provide content to the front page.  I just happened to see this thread from the main forum page.

I didn't move the thread, I merged it since there was already a discussion going on prior to yours. 

I saw it more as discussion about a service about a company offers, not about console games themselves.

I always thought forum mods were staff members.  My apologies.

As for the topic, there have been many topics in the Console Games forum about Gamefly and this would go with those posts.

But I see why you merged it to the topic in Off-Topic.  I don't think the original should have been made there. smile

Mods have access to that forum, but I'm speaking for myself here, but I don't visit there much.  Mainly because it doesn't need to be moderated since it's just staff talking about site related info.  I just happened to see it because it showed on the main forum page.

I think it's a fine line, yes it's about console games, but it's also about a store and their service.  Since a thread was already created and had a discussion already going, I gave him the benefit of the doubt.  It's certainly nothing personal.
