    A somewhat semi-serious suggestion here. The questions forum is a great place for people to get a quick and generally reliable answer to obscure game knowledge that they may require randomly one day. However it is also flooded with lots of questions relating to recent updates, the answers to which have already been covered in an announcement.

    My solution is that whenever an update is made, users are automatically redirected to an announcement page (much like when a dirty bomb is detonated you get told about it on the 'radio') where the new update is covered. You must then answer a couple of simple questions about the announcements that you could only do after reading it.

    This would (hopefully) clear up a lot of pointless threads in the question forum, and generally benefit everyone!

    The announcements appear on a page when you log in

    First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

    Yeah but it's not quite eye grabbing enough, and you're not forced to read them which means people can just be lazy and spam stupid questions for the hundredth time.

    It's hardly flooded... I don't see why it's an issue... questions forum exists for people to ask questions, they shouldn't be ridiculed for that. It's not something that's an issue to you.

    .

    If you don't want to answer the question because you've seen it before then you're doing it wrong... not like you even do that much in the first place... I've maybe seen you post in questions half a dozen times, ever, if that? Not even to answer the question in recent times I've noticed.

    .

    If you don't want to answer a question then just don't answer it... but it's no one's place to tell someone that their questions are pointless.

    Not answering questions doesn't mean I don't notice the same things crop up all the time, stuff that has literally just been explained in an all-access forum. It's not that hard, that's all I'm saying. My suggestion is more to benefit those whom would normally ask such questions, they would get all the info they need. F

    Fair enough though; maybe a little unfair to label them 'pointless' but they could spend 5 minutes at the very least checking the announcements thread if they can't be bothered to look for other threads of the same question.
