What is the site's position on "make a character/party" questions like:
The answer to "make me a character" is like 5 pages long, which is barely tolerable. "Make me a whole party" goes way over the line to intolerable by that measure IMO - it's not a question, it's a work request. I'll note "write my program for me" is frowned on on SO as well. I'm not against people building CharOp guides, but this probably isn't the best site to host them.
As an addition to the "Office" and "Adventure Time" build questions - this site isn't for discussion or spitballing. It is for getting answers to actual questions you have or problems you face with running or playing RPGs. A focused question on "I'm making a Pathfinder samurai archer, how do I balance that with thing X" is fine. A "make Batman! In all game systems!" is crap and no amount of meta complaining will keep the mods from nuking it. Be advised.
I think demanding that a charachter or party be made is bad form and should be discouraged. However, asking about what background or theme or feat would go well with a certain charachter is a perfectly reasonable question, along with a party. What the person is asking is for someone who knows the breadth of the rules better than them, to bring up or mention ideas and powers that might otherwise be overlooked.
I think for some questions the actual stating becomes too prescriptive and for a lot of poster too longwinded to follow, and a simple short sweet descriptive answer is sometimes all that's needed.
It would help people link the concept to functionality which some people (I included) struggle with for some games.
Perhaps some other functionality is needed whereby character sheets could be uploaded and viewed separate to the Q&A functionality?
Or full blown break downs of character building could form blog posts on the site?
Essentially, there seems to be a desire for this on RPG.SE and shutting it down with no discussion is going to drive some people away.
Not all game systems are D&D. Not all character builds- justifications and all- need to be more than a page long. In some systems asking about developing/optimizing/etc a full party of characters may make perfect sense. As an example, consider the system 'What is an RPG': a novice RPG group may want to ask about forming a party for that game, which shouldn't really take too much space to answer. FATE 2.0 characters are also very short, and asking about a party there could be possible too (to give an example from a game people play in significant numbers).
