Updates to the forum rules (August 15, 2019)

Hi everyone,

Today we have updated the Rules and guidelines on the forums in order to make them even easier to understand and clearer for everyone. The updates are small and I'd ask you to go take a look here and here to make sure you are familiar with the rules again.

We would like to highlight this particular addition to the rules:
  • Keep it on-topic. If someone created a thread, it's because they're looking for an answer to their question or want to discuss a specific topic. Changing the topic of the thread isn't helpful.
    • This would include derailing a discussion about a game/game feature by turning it into a comparison of different games.
We have noticed a number of discussions about games/game features sometimes turn into game comparison discussions. Often this was not the intention of the user who opened the topic. When discussions become off-topic it has resulted in the creator of the thread asking for it to be closed far too often.

Want to discuss which generation had the best toddlers? That's great – and you should! In these cases, we’d ask you to please, instead of joining any thread related toddlers, for example, start your own comparison thread dedicated to having that specific conversation. This will help keep existing threads on topic, create a space for the conversation you’d like to hold and respect the desires of other members as well. Everyone wins!

If you have any questions, please, feel free to send a DM to one of the moderators (EA_Rtas or EA_Joz) or myself.

Thank you,
-Mai
