I've been thinking on creating various posts in the form of
Community Wiki to gather information in an extensive way but I'm not quite sure of how to do it properly, so here is my idea.
Step 1 present the topic: Examples of x mechanic in games, and develop the question.
Step 2 create a pattern for the answers:As this kind of question is too abroad and there is lots of valid answers creating a community wiki where people can edit the answer and just add another example seems to be the way to go, plus, to keep it useful for future readers. This pattern would be something like:
Pattern for debuffs
Step 3 create an example answer: Using this pattern answer the question as community wiki
Step 4 ask people not to answer but improve/correct the post: Review grammar, add/remove/modify elements of the pattern, clarify the question,title...
Step 5 once this is done "open" the question for the actual answers
Finally, my concerns are:
Attending to the community rules. Is this the right way to do that?
Step 4 is likely to generate discussion how to manage that; A post on meta? Ask a mod for a chat room?(Not sure how this work)
Anything I miss?
