I am sure this is common, but a post I made that started off as a rant/opinion generator, revealed a deeper question I wanted answered, however, it took some time to elicit this, so a lot of comments back and forth. It seems there was interest in the question in each of its various forms. However, to an extent, I feel I had gotten some negative reviews based on assumptions from people who had read the original question (in fact one moderator mxyzplk♦ wrote something to the extent of "oh, good for you, getting revenge for your previous question.") That is probably not the case at this point though.
I am recently trying to ask a question regarding gold in roleplaying game, particularly the Dungeons and Dragons games. I was told that it was too broad in scope of editions of the game. However, I feel the only relevant piece of info is that gold adds abilities to your character sheet you can do in a combat round, so it applies to any edition.
Realizing the converse of that, I realize a question on any edition would actually answer my question on all editions, so I am willing to change it to 5e specific.
There are numerous out-dated comments that make it look worse than it is at this point.
Lastly, I actually have an answer to the question. I believe my answer demonstrates that the question can be answered. Sorry for jeopardy, but is it possible to ask, "what is the question that this answer answers?"
I am not sure what to do at this point, is it just locked for too many comments, or did a moderator lock it?
