Do you want us to report off topic posts we see? I know it is a choice on the report menu, but wanted to be sure.

I know, it's a steep slope.

In general, if there's something you think is worth reporting, report it for the sake of it. It's your forum more than ours, so we're doing our best to cater to you guys on things like that.

The rule of thumb I'd use is that-

If the conversation essentially becomes another conversation, then ya.

If things start to outright derail, as in a page worth of "Did Naruto Die?" popping up in a topic about Kakashi's shoes, ya.

If it's just a natural aside here and there, like how our Rank System topic's going, I'd let it go. It'd be great if you made a post that got things back on topic, but it'd be safe to let it go.

Good question, by the way.

So to be clear, if a topic is unrelated to the forum (for example a manga discussion in the gaming forums) it should be reported.

Derails should be taken on a case by case basis.

You put it better than I did ;).

Thanks for the clarification.
