It’s not only me that has realized that the DevForum nowadays is extremely hard to navigate without coming across spammed posts on #development-discussion . And, to my opinion, this needs to be changed.
It has been pointed out countless times that #development-discussion is not a place to talk about events or something outside of Roblox development, as the name itself suggests. But, I’m not gonna rumble around that since there’s already a topic on that.
Members of the DevForum have proved many times that they are not capable of handling a more “open” topic. Common are the cases where you see extremely off-topic threads or topics that have already been discussed.
Even though, I am just a member of the DevForum, I wouldn’t really bother if the #development-discussion topic got locked for Regulars+. If not, try out an alternative solution:
Improve the Tutorial method. Right now, the only guidance for DevForum members is @discobot which is a bot offered by the forum company, used ONLY to teach members how to use the DevForum features such as flagging, editing posts, etc. However, many of them don’t really read the rules before posting in each topic, making the DevForum an unbearable place to navigate on. I suggest making an interactive tutorial, where you can LEARN how to use each topic and think wisely before posting. That way, we can limit off-topic threads to the minimum and keep the DevForum a spam-free place!
