Should I put "FAQ request" or “Designer response needed” in my post or thread?No.
Doing so suggests that your post or thread is more “worthy” of staff attention than someone else’s thread which doesn’t include this text.
Also, because having more FAQ clicks doesn’t make a thread more likely to be answered, doing this to encourage more FAQ clicks doesn’t help you.
Finally, most people insisting they need a designer or developer to weigh in with an official answer are in a situation where they’re disagreeing with the GM or another player and one side refuses to budge unless they get an official response from Paizo, and Paizo doesn’t want to encourage that sort of heavy-handedness.
Please refrain from putting "FAQ request" in your title.
hmmm, I feel like this is something that, for the most part is, ludicrous. Almost all FAQ request threads have been made with the express intent of putting a nice bow on an issue and making it clear and concise on what rules affect the issue and then requesting a FAQ on it.
likewise, i'm not going to FAQ a post unless the poster intends for it to be used as FAQ content.
I feel that the "don't post FAQ request threads" is entirely out of touch on why they're really made. If a thread generates a item that is a potential FAQ candidate I believe the responsible thing to do is to make a seperate thread expressly to generate buzz on getting it FAQed.
Likewise, if they don't care about the quantity of FAQs then there's no real reason to have the FAQ system in the first place.
it feels like a lame reason to discourage FAQing.
I also feel I need to post this. regardless on whether it is on topic or not.
They're not saying "don't post FAQ request threads". They're saying "don't put 'FAQ REQUEST' in the title of your rules discussion threads".
