Our Help page "What topics can I ask about here?" has some lovely site-specific advice for answerers under the heading When replying to questions, be aware of our site guidelines:
- Not everything here has an objectively correct answer, but subjective answers should be backed up with real play experience. See the blog post Good Subjective, Bad Subjective for how to answer subjective questions on Stack Exchange.
- There are many different tastes in games and different kinds of playstyle. All styles are welcome here, but attacking others' styles as wrong is not. As a rule, answer questions in the style they were asked - telling someone "they are playing wrong" is usually unwelcome and not constructive.
- Comments are for asking for clarification or providing constructive feedback on answers and should not be long discussion threads; comments are considered temporary and will be cleaned up by mods. If you have a major point to make, write your own answer and let people vote on it. Comment warring will not be tolerated.
The Help page "How do I write a good answer?" mentions none of this. So far as I can tell, it doesn't have any site-specific advice at all. This seems... non-ideal and easily remedied.
Can we please add our excellent advice to answerers to the page for advice to answerers? And while we're doing that, can we add a link to our faq post on subjective-questions? We've got some good site-specific advice available for subjective answering, and I know I struggled with translating the GS/BS blog into actionable guidelines for RPG.SE on my own (especially since "Back it up!" is now a dead link).
