Lots of simialr questions around skill challenges, and most of them are having some great answers. But I feel we're into a cascade where they feed off each other. What is the best way to handle this? Does it need some skillful moderator editing? Is this when we move to communitywiki?
No, not community wiki. The answer is to close the ones that are duplicates, but I'm not sure we have that yet ...
- What makes a skill challenge great?
- This is about what features a great skill challenge has, not necessarily how to make them great.
- How do you involve all players in a skill challenge?
- How to craft and execute a challenge that will involve all your players at the table.
- How to make skill checks more then just sequences of die chucking
- How to involve good role-playing and story development in your skill challenge.
- Need skill challenge ideas for Nature
- Specific list of ideas for a specific type of challenge.
I don't see those as being duplicates, and I'm not sure their answers will merge well.
Don't even try to merge questions. Sure there's going to be a lot of questions that are extremely similar, but there's a specific element of the question that makes it unique. There's a very good reason that there's the "Related Questions" part of the column to the right. And if anybody comments or answers with a link to the similar questions, they will show up as "Linked Questions" above the related ones. So if you come across one question (say to skill challenges) that seems close to what you're looking for, but not quite, then most likely the other questions will appear as links from said question.
As C. Ross commented on his answer, there's good reasoning behind the wording of "Exact duplicate" for closing a question.
