Answering low-quality and off-topic questions gives them impression that it's okay to ask these types of questions, because someone will always answer them.

I made the mistake of venturing back into the Suggested Edit queue... it's still the festering craphole of bad edits and worse approvals that I remembered it to be. *Sigh*


The robo-approvers are killing my will to review edits

Can we add “recommendations” to the list of “What kinds of questions should I not ask here” in the FAQ?

comment Board games for two players
have you considered accepting an answer? This question has been open for a few days now, and with 21 answers, one of them must be good. (Disclaimer: I'm not saying, "Hey, accept my answer"; I'm merely trying to get acceptance rates up as we've been discussing acceptance rates here: meta.boardgames.stackexchange.com/questions/138/…)

comment How do I avoid the endless trade negotiations in Settlers of Catan?
Agreed; I've found that once people find out no one will trade with them, they start to tone things down. Your mileage may vary, of course.

comment Sunrise vs. “Summon Eclipse” in Buffy the Vampire Slayer
I guess I look at it more as "Go directly to Jail, do not pass Go, do not collect $200" sense of "Move the talisman to the first new space". I guess for my interpretation to work, it would have to say something like "Place the Talisman on the first new space" or explicitly state that sunrise is ignored.
