Dear Newcomers,

There has been a recurring theme on this forum, with new people wanting to know the answer to a quick question by creating a whole new thread. Most likely this has already been discussed, and if this continues categories may be filled with gazillions of subject duplicates (probs not, but still). If you have a quick question, can I please direct you to:

Huzzah! A place to store your questions! If it is deemed to be complex enough to become a thread of its own, Iโ€™m sure a nice moderator would make it so. This is just a recommendation, and I am by no means discouraging discussion about game features, but just for the convenience of other people using the forum, please think before you ask. Thank yee.

Yeahโ€ฆ I donโ€™t think newcomers who donโ€™t read the threads will read this threadโ€ฆ Maybe it would be better if it were to say this message whenever one makes his or her first post.

Iโ€™m pretty sure thereโ€™s a way to pin posts on discourse, maybe that would work.

We replaced the globally pinned notice with a link to our FAQ.

I think we can all agree at this point that there is no way to prevent duplicate topics

Which is why we link the originals and lock the dupe threads!
