[Suggestion] Multi-posted Comment filter
Return to board index
One thing I've begun to notice more and more lately of are comments that are identical or related / similar for things. As a good example:
and scroll to
's comment. You'll notice that this exact post is repeated on every single daily quest and regular quest version of the Skybreaker quests.
Now I am all for comments and helpful things, but seeing it on every single daily and quest...? Quite possibly there sould be a filter that if a post matches up more than 70% (I feel that's reasonable) with another, there should be a warning before it's posted stating something to the effect of "You have posted something similar recently - Are you sure you want to post this?" In addition, for those of us scouring items that are similar, we don't want to read the same 8 comments over and over again (Ala - Heroic and non-heroic item versions from TotC are good culprits of this).
Instead, is it possible to put a "View original" link on those pages so that instead of having half the screen taken up by comments that I've read on 8 other items? The limitation of the comment engine may be tricky, but I wouldn't mind not being slammed with the same comment on every post. Especially when said post is like the Skybreaker post with half of the screen taken up by a pseudo-ASCII drawing.
As a good example:
and scroll to
's comment.I don't have much to say on this topic, but
here's a convenient link direct to what Geno's talking about
For what it's worth, I appreciate the fact that users will repeat post the same (helpful) comment on similar quests. If I'm looking up a quest, I'd rather know right there and then what the solution is, rather than have to look back at other similar quests to find out.
Yeah, my instinct is to side with Squishalot on this one. I don't see any problem with posting identical comments across multiple pages as long as the comment is relevant to each page. In fact, I
did it myself
once or twice.
