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.

If you answer low-quality and off-topic questions, you're ruining Stack Overflow.

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 How does Confusion in the Ranks trigger itself upon entering the battlefield?
The last line was what I was looking for! "Each time an event puts one or more permanents onto the battlefield, all permanents on the battlefield (including the newcomers) are checked for any enters-the-battlefield triggers that match the event." Somehow after all this time, I've missed those points. Thanks!

comment How does Confusion in the Ranks trigger itself upon entering the battlefield?
I'm aware of that, I guess my confusion was this: I cast CitR; CitR resolves. It's now in play. Why would it then trigger itself once it's already in play? It's already in play, I would have thought that only future cards would trigger it.

comment Axis & Allies - Opening strategies for the U.K.
The question is for UK strategies, not Axis strategies.

comment What caused “Liliana of the Veil” to double its price during a single week?
I pitched mine for $55 the other day, and I'm a happy camper. There's no way she'll maintain.

comment What is the difference between “flying” and “this creature can only be blocked by creatures with flying”?
@thesun -- it was too obvious, but I should have included it for completeness. Oh well.

comment What is the difference between “flying” and “this creature can only be blocked by creatures with flying”?
+1 - that's what I get for looking for the link for Moat. Well, actually +1 when I get my votes back in 22 hours.

comment What are some alternatives to using dice in Settlers of Catan?
Casino-grade dice are still dice and not an "alternative to dice"

comment Interesting boardgames to play with children.
It's a random, frustrating game if you ask me.

comment Can a Space Marine army consist of units from different chapters?
It's usually frowned upon to even have differently painted units in the army, since each main chapter has their own codex, and with it their own set of rules. If I see red marines with a teardrop, I'll think, "He's playing Blood Angels". If I see green marines with white wings, "There's Dark Angels". If I see both of those, plus blue and yellow marines, my firs thought would be "Which army book exactly are you using?"

+! - Leeches used to be a junk rare, and now with Mirrodin Beseiged et al, it's hovering around $4 for Legacy

comment Public knowledge in Settlers of Catan?
Is that actually stated in the rules, or just your opinion? I can't find that in my copy of the rules or the online PDF

@Tom -- one comment does not equal "many winning players".

comment What Makes Buildings Valuable In Puerto Rico?
"But many winning players prefer this strategy" Really? I've always seen people have better luck with shipping than building. Source?

comment Is Klak's Infernal Artifact affected by powers that move monsters?
what about the part that states "Attacking Klak's Artifact will destroy it."? Doesn't that mean that simply attacking it will destroy it? Or is it a poorly-worded way of stating "You may attack Klak's Artifact"?

comment Finding places to play Magic the Gathering games
welcome to the site! I have edited your question to keep the question more general; asking for places to play in a specific city is too localized and could possibly be closed.

comment Does a Takeout Double Apply to a “Passed” Partner?
@Tom - I'd like to take a minute and point out that your stats here are very skewed. Your acceptance rate of 26% is very low -- see this meta post about acceptance rates: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/34919/…. Also, you have only voted twice so far since joining despite asking nearly 50 questions (which is nearly unheard of in and of itself); have there been no answers worth upvoting, and no other questions worth upvoting?

comment How do I Decide to Sacrifice or Preserve “Smaller” Naval Units (E.g. Subs) In Axis and Allies?
it takes more than 24 hours sometimes for a question to be answered, you need to be patient. The re-worded question works better, but I take issue that it seems like you are trying to start a discussion.

comment How do I Decide to Sacrifice or Preserve “Smaller” Naval Units (E.g. Subs) In Axis and Allies?
I appreciate your answer, but Stack Exchange sites are not discussion forums. Questions are asked, and answered. Please try to keep that in mind when asking questions here. See the meta question: meta.boardgames.stackexchange.com/questions/462/…, and the FAQ entry "What kind of questions should I not ask here?"
