As well all know, #development-discussion has been a huge issue since it was opened up to members. Many ideas have been thrown out, but most of them are counterintuitive to the original idea of keeping it open so everyone can discuss.
I believe if we can add a ‘PSA:’ type thread pinned to the top of #development-discussion, people might take notice, and not post off topic there. Here are 2 examples of ‘PSA:’ type threads:
Both of these threads are at the top of #collaboration, as shown below:
To my knowledge, #development-discussion does not have this type of thread, as shown below:
These threads are somewhat effective; while #collaboration still has issues, it is not as common as off-topic posts are in #development-discussion. If needed, I can write a thread under #bulletin-board and if staff/sages like it, you can use it.
If I made a mistake here please do not hesitate to let me know.
