Before I begin - I am in no way, shape or form suggesting that moderators are "bad" or otherwise at fault of doing something they should not be. In my opinion, they are doing a splendid job and should be commended! My issue, however, is with the rules. Not even as much with "the rules", but with how they are communicated. In particular, I would like to ask about the "Game Development > Game Mechanics Design" board. Per inspection, the rules are as follows (35) Numbers 3 and 4 are quite clear. Its the 1 and 2 that I would like to raise a question to. In one of the discussions (98090) I have linked to a physical implementation - an RPG MV Plugin that, in my opinion, was on topic. The discussion was about the same Hit Rate of both Melee and Ranged weapons. And the plugin in question discussed (and implements) how the melee weapons should not be reaching "back row". @Kes has issued me a friendly reminder that my link to the plugin is against the board rules and, per further discussion, it was explained to me that the issue is not with the 1st rule, how I originally thought, but with the 2nd - Where physical implementation reference is considered off-topic at the discussion board. Note: I will repeat myself just in case... I no way shape or form do I imply that Kes has overstepped his or her duties as a moderator. My goal is to better understand the rules myself and to potentially resolve the embarrassment of friendly reminders for others. As far as I have seen across the board Kes is doing a splendid job and I am very grateful with their initial tossing of my early threads into correct boards. I have noticed it takes a bit to learn where to post when you are still fresh to the boards. To my confusion... In parallel I was reading another topic, on delaying combat exposure (99537), where many board members were making comparison to other games and actively discussing how one or the other practical implementation has treated the mechanic in question. I have not seen any warnings issued. Friendly or otherwise. If discussing detailed items is considered off-topic, I'd like to kindly request to please outline or mention this in the rules. It is hard to follow the rules when they are not communicated clearly. Actions taken on thread in question: After partially clarifying the issue, I have marked my clearly off-topic posts up for deletion but have a screenshot of the conversation in question for reference, available on request.
