So, the question "What monsters are depicted on the 4.0 DM Screen?" has 3 answers that each contribute a bit of answer to the question and collectively answer it. Rather than 3 separate answers, I think they should be appended one after the other into a single answer, since that's the entire point of the Community Wiki option.

Personally, I've soured on CW answers after my brief dalliance with them. I'd be more interested in seeing you assemble the parts into one comprehensive answer, with attribution liberally sprinkled about. Nobody's likely to accuse a top-20 name in the reputation league of trying to pad their stats, and they'd be wrong if they did.

I don't think either way's right or wrong in this case, though. That there ^^ is what my instinct would be if I were looking at such a thing.

  • \$\begingroup\$ I had that instinct, but then I was like 'isn't this what CW is for?'. Fair enough, though, I might go collate them. \$\endgroup\$ – Please stop being evil Apr 14 '18 at 22:44

I agree this seems like a decent use case for Community Wiki. I'd also like to see a comprehensive answer that's verifiable and not just "maybe it's this?".

I've posted a Community Wiki answer with numbering: https://rpg.stackexchange.com/a/120494/1204

Thanks to a later edit by TDW, #2 is the only one left without a conclusive answer. If anyone knows for sure what that one is, feel free to add it in.

(This isn't endorsing this as a scenarion which others should use CW as well; I just chose to do so in this case because I can.)

    \$\begingroup\$ Not to be contrarian, but... I'd suggest that the answer you posted is a significant improvement over any of the existing ones, shows work of your own, and really does "deserve" to have the rep go to the author. But again, not a strong "right" or "wrong" result, methinks. \$\endgroup\$ – nitsua60 Apr 14 '18 at 23:05

    \$\begingroup\$ @nitsua60 That's a valid concern, though also I'm 30k and even have this spiffy diamond, and either one alone means I don't feel much need to get rep anymore. That made it a pretty easy decision to just make it CW so that people could go make sure the answer was awesome with the last bits missing. This is a fairly exceptional situation though for that judgement call to come up. :P \$\endgroup\$ – doppelgreener Apr 14 '18 at 23:09
