    Default New OAQT Rules

    Since the One Answer Question Thread is often a giant mess, I made some rules for the thread, so there will be less spam from now on and the thread can be used more efficiently. Check out the first post of the OAQT.

    Feel free to discuss the post, give suggestions, and ask any questions about it.

    The only problem I have involves this:
    Wait a week or so or until your post is unnoticeable, before bumping a question.
    Around 2 new pages are made every day. One week is well over 10 new pages. So, I reckon it should be 2 or 3 days. That way, you don't have to wait a week to re-ask a question that would have no chance of being answered in the first place. Not many people read every post.
    (1/5/12) 3x3x3 - 11.88/15.61/16.65 | 4x4x4 - 1:08.10/1:18.46/1:23.41 | 2x2x2 - 1.01/3.70/4.59

    I changed it from a week to 3 days. I think you're right about a week being too long, I just don't want people to bump their question every few hours to get it to the newest page.

    Don't post "this belongs in the OAQT" in other question threads.
    This should go in the forum rules.

    Putting it in the forum rules is the surest way to get it ignored.

    Fair enough. It was just a thought, didn't think anyone would actually do it. Worth a shot though...
