Hello everyone

You guys are well aware of the DreamDTH Articles Discussions section. We have our "super" bot posting an auto created thread for every news article published on our news site. We have been experimenting few options on this section on trial and error basis. Finally, we decided to take a call.

Proceeding further, all threads posted by our Bot will be in locked state by default. Meaning, no member can reply to those threads. We decided this because, majority of our news articles are written with inputs from the threads on our community. There would be an existing thread where the same/similar topic is being discussed. So it becomes unnecessary to keep another thread open for the same.

However, there are few cases where we would publish any exclusive or "first on net" kind of news, or any analysis or reviews which do not have any existing thread but are worth discussing. Such threads shall be opened for discussion.

So we have devised few rules/requests for the mods, authors and our members. We expect the fullest cooperation.

For the Mods:
  • If you find any auto posted thread which do not have an existing discussion on the forums, please open those threads.
  • Whenever you open a thread make sure to leave a reply similar to, "This thread is now open for discussion."
  • Posting such a reply would bump the thread up in latest activity, so people could easily identify it. Without the reply, thread would be dead and buried deep below.
For the authors:
  • Whenever you publish an article on news site and see the auto thread which needs to be opened, reach out to the mods on the request thread or the authors section to open the thread, with the thread link.
  • You can also use the report button on such threads notifying the same.
For the members:
  • If you find any auto thread which do not have an existing thread on the community and worth to be discussed, reach out to the mods on the request thread to open the thread, with the thread link.
  • You can also use the report button on such threads notifying the same.
  • If you happen to notice any mistakes on the news article or want to leave a reply to the article, feel free to use the comments system on our news site itself.
  • For replying to the news articles, priority should always be given to the comments system on the news site itself. It will help increase the engagement and traffic.
  • In case you are not comfortable with the comments system but want to report a mistake on the article, use the report button on the auto thread.
  • The above point is only to report errors, for any other regular replies always use comments system.

Note: Team reserves the right to open/close the threads. Please do not force/abuse any team members for the same. Thread open request via PMs will not be entertained.

Regards
Team DreamDTH
