Quite often questions and comments have been made before, have a look here before starting a new thread.
The first two posts of this thread have links to other threads that you may find useful to follow direct, or copy and paste in response to new questions.
This post deals with common topics of discussion. Some of which can be contentious. The next post down is a series of links to guides and tips, also in threads.
The third post is a useful index to the Design Discussion Archive - please look there first for all your gameplay mechanic related queries.
As ever, if you find a helpful thread or want something added, pop it on the thread below and I’ll get it moved up here for all to see.
