Forum Basics

5 posts in this topic

I'm in here from time to time and it occurs to me, I haven't really used online forums in decades. I'm sure a good many things are slipping by me.

Any suggestions on how best to navigate the forums, avoid duplicating posts, or just general tips on usage?

As an example, I had a suggestion on fall damage. I searched to see what had been said before and found a thread last updated in 2016. It was, however, the most logical place to put my thoughts. Is that post likely buried so far down that no one will see it unless they follow that thread? Or does it get bumped to the top?

Simple things like this are beyond my knowledge base I fear.

A new post will bump any thread to the top yes. However is the thread is too old a lot of the info in it will be severely outdated (specially since this is a forum an an game in actual development). In which case it might be a better idea to make a new thread. As for where the limit goes for bumping an old thread or make a new, is hard to say, is really a case by case thing

The last few months there have been quite a few new users bumping 1 - 2 year old threads while adding nothing new of value. Don't be that guy.
My number one rule is lurk moar. It's an old one that a lot of people ignore. It doesn't have to be every day, but don't jump in at the end of every other month and expect to be fed a recap.

Rule of thumb: Is the thread older than 3-6 month, make a new one. The forum rules of conduct (§ cross posting) say 90 days, but this rule is (mostly) heading for the opposite case - only make a second thread if there haven't been one within the last three month. 

The most important boards are the announcements, discussions, suggestions, questions, website bugs &issues and the most recent playtest feedback & bugs thread. It should be self-explantory which topic fits best into which board. ;)

Announcement and playtest feedback threads are probably most scanned by the team. Followed by the other mentioned boards. I would say that nothing in these areas will go unnoticed by the team. 

Good luck, have fun and welcome. :)
