I respectfully suggest that the Trading Post Forum be closed during the Championships rather than Things Not T&F, since Trading Post gets a lot less traffic (a whole lot). This suggestion is based on my assumption (which could be wrong) that the BB software has a limit on the number of open forums.

After all, sometimes there are some things worth talking about during the Championships, like Jeopardy Champ Emma Boettcher losing in her fourth game (3rd defense after dethroning James Holzhauer).
