A questions megathread was asked about before, however it is not something that we view as being a practical solution. Presently, we have Sunday, a cycle of regular threads which includes Silly Question. This appears to fit that criteria, but it's only scheduled for looks that are biweekly. Runescape isn't as fast-paced or as large as some other subreddits, therefore it's possible for OSRS gold users to create new posts to ask questions and receive replies without overwhelming or flooding our subreddit. Unlike some subreddits, it is possible because entry frequency is lower to browse here.
Also, developing a megathread for queries may give the impression that consumers are not allowed to create posts to ask questions regarding Runescape, which is not a view that we support or encourage. Unfortunately, article filtering isn't sensible on Reddit for routine article therefore it may seem overwhelming for many users to see every article at a subreddit flowing via a feed.
(Article flairs do somewhat assist with this.) This variety causes some posts to be overlooked while others reach sexy, since they're rarely upvoted and a vast majority of query posts don't reach / sexy here. 1 side of not using a megathread is this allows these posts to get the opportunity to be searched for when somebody has a query later on. Searching for comments on Reddit is difficult, and searching for articles by name may yield results which deters someone. And of course, a part of questions asked may be answered on the RuneScape Wiki, which is referred to.
The daily volume of question posts here does not seem to represent an overwhelming amount that would warrant a daily series of recurring stickies. Maybe we could increase the frequency of Silly Question Sunday from biweekly? The question of is also sparked by this, is the purpose of wanting a normal megathread to further assist or will it be to hide these questions from the view?
Agreed. I also have some suggestions concerning the sub moderators: create a bot that answers to any thread using"OSRS" or"oldschool runescape" on the name with a URL to the 2007 Runescape sub, so that they are now able to know that there's 2 RuneScape subs, there is a ton of clueless men and women who post here thinking that is actually the OSRS sub simply to get mass downvoted. Also please create a bot that answers to some"is this real?","Just got this email" fake email/phishing attempt thread, that gives advice on the best way best to prevent yourself to cheap RuneScape gold fall to phishing links; that they need to also forward the bogus email to jaghex with the email header info so that it gets noticed and taken action against.
