Hello new member here,
I read the forums rules and did a search but did not find a topic on this, how far back in time can you reply to an existing thread, before you cross the community censuses of “old topic” to “thread necromancy”?
Different forums have a different “unofficial” limit on how far back (in months or years) you can reply to something, so I wanted to check before I started posting (as I see topics going back many years that are interesting and that I would like to participate in). :)
There is no real “limit” here. Just be reasonable with your necromancy, as not all threads are created equal. Some may be time-sensitive issues (“Plz Help with My Game!”), while others may be of a more enduring nature.
Always consider whether you and the server would be best served by reading the old topic and creating a new one, or if it really needs continuing.
A follow up question for veterans of the “FFG Forums Wars ™”, are there well known topics that have been previously asked and answered so many times that they automatically qualify for a “reset the clock” meme?
That’s probably wise.
Bear in mind that there are three (and a half) Star Wars RPG forums in that archive, one for each line and then one for GMs, and the site’s search function is a bit buggy.
It may be worth bringing up a question that’s been answered previously if you have something new to say or are looking for additional opinions, as that will help build this forum’s backlog (which would help newcomers like yourself).
, I am a long time D&D/PF GM, with a bit of other RPGs in my lifeforce (recently about 6 months of Mutant Year Zero RPG), and I am laying the groundwork for a FFG SW RPG campaign for in-person/meatspace for Q1 2022.
If you dont mind a another question, how long can you edit a post (minutes, hours, days, months…)?
And thanks for the welcome!
An alternate question, I am slowing working my way through multiple topic discussion threads looking for something specific (before I start checking the archived threads), on the off chance some already knows the answer:
Is there an existing thread that has a min/max (optimizing) topic of with races work best with which careers and specialization?
Thanks for the quick responce! This weekend I am doing ZERO RPG creative writing (as many of you might have noticed), as I have to much “RL” stuff going on. Next week however, I will take up this challange if no one beats me to it.
Is it because of “FFG forums wars of the past”, because the ruleset doesn’t really encourage it (unlike say, GURPS and Pathfinder 2E), or because its an “unwritten rule” arrived by community consensus?
Well I’ll be glad to help you with it. Do you have a spreadsheet of the various species options? It is not complete since I don’t have all the books, but I have a pretty comprehensive species spreadsheet if it would help you.
