Should gameplay help have a ‘Post Your Save’ announcement/pinned post?

Post by NotRexButCaesar »

It seems like most posts require people to guess what the problem is & ask for clarification because the screenshots provided often have not enough information.

Perhaps there should be a help template like the one in ideas and suggestions.

The thing is, people who don't provide save files likely don't read announcement posts either.

I think that is only true to an extent, and as long as some who would not have thought to attach/link to a save do read announcement posts, there is some benefit. For those that don't provide a save, but it is difficult to help them without it, an announcement could be a gentle explanation to link to. Instructions may be useful for all (where are my saves, how do I attach, size limit, ...).

I am not sure about this. Asking for help is much more open-ended than providing an idea or suggestion.
