What sorts of questions are allowed?
Questions must be something which can be answered collaboratively by the Dragon Age Answers community. Questions can not be something which can only be answered subjectively, as the community can not work together on the answer.
Questions must be answerable. This doesn't mean they need to be easy to answer. It does mean things like "Where should my character go?" are not permitted, as this isn't something our community knows. Questions about non-public figures are not suitable. This means you should not be asking questions about yourself, your friends, or other Wikia users.
Dragon Age Answers is family-friendly, which means swear words can not be used in questions. Some of these will automatically be disallowed and others will be cleaned up by the community.
Dragon Age Answers is not a joke site. For that, please visit UnAnswers, a parody of Wikianswers and a sister site of Uncyclopedia. Here on Dragon Age Answers, answers should really try to help answer the question. This doesn't mean your answer has to be bland, but it must provide a real solution to what is being asked.
Dragon Age Answers is not a link directory and we don't accept spam. It's okay to add a link as a source, but you do need to give some text with it so that people can get their answer here at Dragon Age Answers.
Some questions that require the use of an individual opinion keep getting asked on Dragon Age Answers. When a question about singular personal opinion (i.e. family values, religion, personal preference, things that affect a singular person rather than two people or more) is asked, an answer that will entirely benefit the whole community can not be achieved! These questions are a very good candidate for deletion.
Please make sure that when making a question you are not targeting a singular point of view; because these questions will continue to get wiped, re-answered, as more and more users come across it.
Dragon Age Answers has higher standards for contributions than most of other answers wikis and contributors are expected to make an effort to maintain the site a safe haven for clean and intelligent DA-related discussions. We expect proper spelling (every modern web browser has an inbuilt spellcheck functionality), punctuation and capitalization. Occasional typos are easily tolerated (and the effort to fix them is welcome). Consistent and deliberate refusal to improve the quality of your contributions will result in a warning and, in case if it was ignored, a ban.
A crossover question involves a person, an object or an event from Dragon Age Universe pitted in comparison against a similar person, object or event from another setting, be it another game universe, a book or a film. A good example is "Who is a better combatant — Hawke or Darth Revan?" Such questions do not benefit Dragon Age Answers community in any way and will be deleted.
Questions that you don't need DAA for answering
There is a reason Dragon Age Answers exists alongside main Dragon Age Wiki. We provide a platform for discussing aspects of Dragon Age that are not clearly answered by the games themselves. Hence before asking your question, search the main wiki for it. Search DAA, too, many questions have been already answered before. Don't ask questions that can be answered by simply playing the games or reading the novels or comics. Breaking this policy is not likely to result in a ban unless severely abused, but such questions will be immediately deleted.
We have a number of guidelines on contributing that help our user to be productive on the site. Please take some time to read and follow them; it will make your — and other contributors' — experience on the site more enjoyable.
Be civil and polite
There's no community without mutual respect. While other contributors' opinions on different aspects of Dragon Age setting — combats tactics, suitable romance options, morality of certain actions and so on — may be very different from yours, it's not an excuse for resorting to flame wars and aggressive arguments. In fact, nothing is. Insulting others over their preferences which shaped their Dragon AGe experience will get you nothing, except maybe a quick ban if you go too far.
Have fun on the site!
