TL;DR: Just some tips on how to write a better Userecho post.
Chances are, if you're not involved in whatever new flamewar is on the discord channel between the V's and some insurgent, then you aren't being 'raided'. While encouraged, users are not obligated to provide a reason for disliking the post, or even comment on it. A few stray dislikes on a post are normal, you can't please everyone in the community.
If you want to lower the amount of dislikes on your posts, blaming raiding is not an effective practice. Instead, in order to maximize likes, put noticeable effort into your posts. Here are some pointers:
-Really flesh out your idea. If you are struck with inspiration, don't just jot down a few sloppy sentences on the Userecho and click 'post'. Instead, open a Word document, a Google Docs, or even just a Sketchpad file and lay your idea's "skeleton" down. Then, go back and add detail. If you're talking about a new map, be sure to describe the aesthetic of the field, as well as the distinct locations of certain aspects of your map. If you want to add a new weapon, discuss several different potential stats.
-Add a TL;DR. if your post gets long enough, it's good to provide a quick abstract at the beginning that summarizes the most important concepts of your post. Label the abstract TL;DR, which is short for "too long, didn't read"- so if a reader is in a hurry, they can get the gist of your post without having to laboriously skim your text.
-Know when to respond to comments. Always welcome and thank constructive criticism or support. However, if the commenter is just trolling, it's best to ignore them. Also, Don't excessively bump your idea posts. it's OK to bump a bug post that doesn't get noticed, but try to avoid bumping ideas.
I hope this helped, everyone!
