I recently marked a question for moderator attention because it was too specific to a given player's particular social situation. It was seemingly removed shortly thereafter - and I thought that was a good decision. I caught it early and it had gotten little attention.
But then I see this question and questions like it and wonder if the same principle applies, even though this one has a lot of activity:
- Is the question of value to the site and the community?
- Are the answers going to have value beyond this asker's instance?
- How can we effectively judge the relative merits of answers? Are "Stay and fix it!" and "Walk!" really going to be differentiated by anything but their popularity?
I genuinely do want to help people with their social gaming problems, but I also genuinely question whether this is the right place to do it. What does the community think?
