I agree. People should be allowed to post new information between launches but shouldn't be allowed to argue/theorize on launch day.
Yes. Several of the people saying no are frequent violators of the updates only rule. Joey D literally just had a post removed a few minutes ago.
The issue is there are LOTs of people who have UPDATES threads on email notification. Very few notify on other threads like discussion threads. Getting pinged constantly as people give their hot takes or nube questions in the updates thread makes notifications more like spam.
How about a simple(?) filter for updates thread. If a post ends with a '?', reject it. Always.
I voted yes and only during live events to L2 Members which helps support the site... Other times are fine and anyone can make a mistake from time to time... You can still post it to the Discussion Thread...Edit to Add:
Yep, if for no other reason than it is probably confusing for the people who post in the updates thread without realising it is wrong (either they didn't check or didn't appreciate the rules). Having your post moved, or having people reply to it in an entirely different thread, probably doesn't make sense if you didn't know you'd posted incorrectly in the first place.And it's also likely to be a bit unnerving when you get shouted at in the forums.
