    Why not wait for the gamerec SE proper? Because I don't believe reputation can work for recommendations. – badp Dec 15 '10 at 18:58
  • Are you going to add a feed for it on the bridge? Yes -- maybe for the ticker, since Reddit is unlikely to onebox properly. – badp Dec 15 '10 at 19:02
  • What does reddit reput--- er, karma do? It's just for the bragging rights. It doesn't actually unlock anything. – badp Dec 15 '10 at 19:03
  • Are delete and remove different? Yes, "remove" is the inverse of "approve", but there's no inverse for "delete". – badp Dec 15 '10 at 19:17

    RE moderation guidelines: What if someone asks for a short but engaging platforming game that has an awesome score system, and I respond with "むかしむかしあるところにとてつもなく仲の悪いツインテールの姉妹姫様がいらっしゃいましたとさ"? Does it really have to get removed? ♪ – Grace Note Dec 15 '10 at 20:12
  • @grace it falls under 'answers thereof' does it not? – badp Dec 15 '10 at 20:48

Hmmm... I don't think using a third party website (and driving users away from here) is a good solution to our problem. I would much rather we find the solution ourselves -- be it with a good policy here, with the Game Rec proposal, or adding a native fourth place to the SE network.

Good luck though, and please report back with feedback on how it worked out.

    This is, of course, only my opinion. – juan Dec 15 '10 at 20:17
  • I'm not sure how this would drive users away. We shouldn't be hosting game recs. Reddit ahouldn't be hosting "real" questions. If anything else they would compliment each other -- see the standard SE reply to worries about new sites and splintering. – badp Dec 15 '10 at 20:54
