Suggestion: Subforum for guides

Postby nickjr » Sun Dec 31, 2017 11:22 pm

A few forums for other games I play have a board specifically for guides. Think it would be nice if CS had one, too, since we have so many guides. Would also de-clutter the CS Discussion board so that people can find actual discussion topics more easily

Not a big priority since we do have the Guide Index but it would be nice

Edit:

Another benefit is that it would be easier to see if someone has already made a certain guide; right now we have to hope that the owner of the Guide Index finds the guide and/or someone posts the guide there, because there's no easy way to search for guides

(the closest right now is searching the topic titles in Chicken Smoothie Discussion for "guide" + topic keywords, which also picks up the question threads and the duplicate would-have-been-guides and dead/outdated/previous version guides; also, since topic titles are brief, it's probably not going to include a lot of keywords, whereas the body of the guide might include those keywords, but here's what happens when you search the first posts of topics in CS Discussion for "guide"--yeah, with the amount of links going to other guides, it's going to be hard to usefully narrow down that search lol)

Edit2:

A counter to this suggestion is that it might encourage users to make unnecessary guides or frivolous guides or something.

I don't really have a counter to that.

I just really think informational guides can go into a dedicated Guides board, especially with how many we have (a LOT), instead of staying in "CS Discussion"

Was your pet adopted December 18, any year, or December 24, 2011? It is most likely an older pet! CLICK ME to identify your pet!

Context, consistency, and clear antecedents are golden.
I neither read nor speak between the lines. But I will analyze your language.

    ^^ support, even though it's not a necessity imo

    some guides also get lost and swept away in cs discussions - having a subforum might prevent that from happening

I think that would be nice actually! My problem is constantly having to search for guides which get swept away rip.

sometimes the depression, the anxiety
comes and wraps around my chest
so tight I can hardly breathe

how can I talk about my feelings,
when my demons have sunk their claws
into my lungs, and left me here to bleed
