Hi, I’m a forum moderator here, and I help neaten up the discussions when I can, so sometimes you’ll notice your topic has been moved to a different category or the title has been slightly edited.
Right now, I’d like to make a simple suggestion for users making new topics, so that we stay a bit organized here.
###Before making a new topic, please search for any recent topics about the same thing.
- This limits having a bunch of topics about the same thing
- For casual conversations, it’s fine to comment in older discussions
- For recent bugs/errors, it’s better to make a new discussion (say, if the last post in the topic is more than a month old or something)
###Please use descriptive titles for all threads.
- The Project Board is technically the only category with posting guidelines, so please definitely follow them when you’re recruiting there
- If you have a specific problem or question, consider using it as your title; this will grab someone’s attention better if they know the fix or if they have the same problem
Example: You have the weekend off after being busy for weeks, and you want to marathon a drama series. You log in and check the shows you’re following, but everything’s disappeared.
You check for recent bug reports about this - nothing. So you decide to start a new topic in the Bugs & Errors category. You could title it [New Bug], but that’s terribly undescriptive. How about [Problem with shows I’m following]? Well, what’s the problem? You decide to call your topic [Shows I’m following don’t appear on my profile].
Then you go to make breakfast, and thankfully, you recall the title of one of the shows you wanted to watch.
