I’ve seen a lot of threads which start off with the following phrase or something in this nature:
If this is in the wrong category, please tell me where it should go.
There’s no need to include this. You have many resources at your fingertips. There’s a reason why I post “please read category guidelines” like it’s a mantra on so many threads. The category guidelines and summaries help you understand what a category is for. Other users in the community, such as Sages and Editors, can also help you find the right category for your post.
These are simple steps you can take to ensure your post is in the right category and avoid getting flagged or having your thread edited, the latter of which I am well aware a lot of you dislike happening as per the PMs I’ve gotten before. There’s virtually no excuse for misusing, intentionally or unintentionally, a category. No, not having access to Platform Feedback isn’t an excuse either. Use Forum Feedback to convey to Developer Relations that their PA alternative is still missing and that access is important to you.
It’s just unfortunate that a lot of posters choose not to read information plainly available or access the resources they have and prioritise posting their own content even if it’s not even the right category. Seeing that happen too often lately and the cherry on top comes when the complaints do as well.
