With a bit more rep, <a href=\"//$SITEURL$/privileges/comment\">you will be able to post comments</a>. For the moment I've added the comment for you, and I've deleted this post. If this was intended to be an answer you can still [edit] it while it is deleted to make it more clearly a real answer, and then flag it for moderator attention. Thanks!"},

{ "name": "[A] Not an independent answer", "description": "So that this is a real answer on its own, <a href=\"\">it's preferable that it answer the question independently</a> by including any necessary statements, and not refer the reader to other answers (except perhaps to give due credit)."},
{ "name": "[A] Answers just to say Thanks!", "description": "Please don't add \"thanks\" as answers. Invest some time in the site and you will gain sufficient <a href=\"//$SITEURL$/privileges\">privileges</a> to upvote answers you like, which is the $SITENAME$ way of saying thank you."},

{ "name": "[Q] Idea generation", "description": "Idea-generation questions don't really work in the Stack Exchange site format. As a rule they result in a list of ideas with <a href=\"\">no obvious way for voters to tell which answers are better than others</a>. If you have a specific problem that can have a right answers we could help with that. Otherwise, you may just actually want a <a href=\"\">chat room or discussion forum</a> instead of a Stack."},
{ "name": "[Q] Idea generation (short)", "description": "Idea-generation questions don't work in the Stack Exchange site format, since they [can't have a right answer]( as the site's systems expect. For gathering ideas, we suggest using an RPG discussion site. We've put together a [list of discussion sites]( to make it easier to find one. Good luck!"},
{ "name": "[Q] Soliciting feedback", "description": "Questions just asking for feedback don't work in the Stack Exchange site format, since they result in discussion, and discussion is off-topic. If you are seeking feedback, you were probably looking for a <a href=\"\">discussion forum, like one of these</a>, instead of a Stack."},

{ "name": "[Q] Why design? prompt", "description": "This is an invitation to discussion and speculation, so it's been put on hold. One possible way to revise this question to be on-topic is to change it to be asking for what the *designers* have said are their reasons for this design choice. However, we'll leave that change up to you to make, since you may simply not be interested in that information, and do actually want to hear fellow RPGers' opinions. If the latter is the case, a Stack isn't suited to that (otherwise fine!) question, but <a href=\"\">an RPG discussion forum</a> would be quite well suited."},
{ "name": "[A] Poster thinks we're a forum (short)", "description": " isn't a discussion forum and answer posts are not for general discussion, only for attempts to solve the problem in the question."},
{ "name": "[A] Poster thinks we're a forum (cheers)", "description": "However, I must point out that we are not a discussion forum; we do <em>only</em> questions and answers, and don't host discussion. Since this is an attempt to discuss the topic instead of help solve the problem, it has been deleted, but do feel free to look around and see if there are any questions you can help solve. Cheers!"},
{ "name": "[A] Failed to Back It Up", "description": "The answer lacks detailed discussion of the author's experience with these observations, problems, and solutions."},
{ "name": "Flame magnet", "description": "Since <a href=\"\">we embrace a plurality of playstyles</a>, this wording is unnecessarily divisive and could be improved with a small \[edit\] while retaining its point."},
{ "name": "Fake headings", "description": "Could you give this an [edit] to replace the <a href=\"\">fake headers with real headers</a>? (You can do that just by replacing the `**` with `##`.) Fake headers might look fine to sighted people, but because a computer thinks they're just a bold normal sentence they cause problems for people using accessibility software to navigate the page or speak it aloud. Thanks!"},
