When to create a new topic

I’ve been scrolling through the forum recently and I find that a lot of the new topics are no less than a sentence or two long. Having learned from my past mistakes, I just came here to discuss this. I’m sure this was one of the reasons why you aren’t allowed to make gdts. You see, it’s fine to make a topic about something big. But if you’re going to make one that isn’t elaborate or just two small, then it would be better putting it in the Y topic and topics would just get too spammy. It’s fine if you don’t agree, but I feel it is almost pointless to make a topic of your own. Now, before you make a topic, think of this.

Is it better just putting it in the Y topic?
Are you sure it isn’t a vague topic for people to guess themselves?
Is it worth making a topic for it?

Thanks for reading this, I hope it helps in your decisions in the future.

Avoiding getting your topic deleted
Don’t make topics about IC (Inappropriate Content)
Such as

  • Links not suited for children
  • or anything against the guidelines

Don’t make topics about rude things

To avoid deleting because of of topicness or spam

If you see an off topic post flag it.
Don’t continue the conversation
Just leave, take a break or tag leaders to handle the situation

What you can make topics about
Stuff that fits into categories
(Comps, Collabs, Rqs. Meta - Forum. Meta - Hopscotch etc)

And don’t make a topic that can fit into another topic.

(If this is covered in another topic, I apologize. And please Clive.)
