"What topics can I ask about here?" still says:
Do some research before asking for games that have/do X so that you're asking an answerable question - also review the site guidance on asking game recommendation questions.
That "site guidance" link leads to an out-of-date ruling on game recommendations. It's closed with a link forward to our current policy, and technically "review the site guidance" isn't saying game-rec is allowable, but it's a very misleading run-around:
- Do research before asking game-rec questions, and...
- ...read this link for guidance on asking game-rec questions:
- Sorry, that's an old link. Here's the new one:
- Actually, don't ask game rec questions at all.
Can we have our on-topic page actually say game-recs aren't on topic, and link directly to the up-to-date meta discussion? It probably won't alert people who also miss the big "OFF TOPIC--DO NOT ASK" on the tag, but it can't hurt and will provide a consistent, less frustrating site experience for those beautiful unicorns who do read the Help pages.
