We've got shiny new font ID guidelines. But there's nothing telling people what the guidelines are until after they've asked the question and someone's closed it - and so every new font ID question is not following the guidelines.
What's happening with that tag alert? Telling people the rules clearly and concisely before they post is a pretty important ingredient to having them follow the rules.
I think users aren't even notified when their questions are closed. Right now:
- We have a system where users are falling foul of a rule they're unaware of
- We're expecting people to spontaneously check back on their question despite receiving no notifications that anything has happened
- Then we're relying on them noticing a low-contrast technical-looking grey banner they had no reason to expect.
Edit: no news?
