Today, we are thrilled to announce that TibiaQA has received two new features: bumping and pinning questions. Bumping a question instantly brings it back up to the top of the All activity section. Pinning a question sticks the question to the top of all the question pages.
At the moment, bumping a question is possible if you have at least 200 reputation points. You can bump a question once every 12 hours, but you can only bump questions that are at least 24 hours old and that haven't been updated for the past 24 hours.
Pinning a question is possible if you have at least 1000 reputation points. You can pin a question once every 7 days, and the question will remain pinned for 12 hours. Similar to bumping, you can only pin questions that are at least 24 hours old. The maximum number of questions that can be pinned at the same time is 3. Any further pins will be queued and pinned as soon as a slot becomes available.
Community Moderators can bump and pin questions regardless of the reputation points and the cooldown. However other restrictions apply to them as well.
A new article in the Help Center has been created that explains bumping and pinning questions.
The number of required reputation points, cooldown duration, and pin duration are subject to further adjustments. We will evaluate how those features are used and adapt as needed.
We hope that those new additions will further contribute to the quality of content available on TibiaQA. They can be used to highlight a question that hasn't received a satisfying answer yet or if you believe some further research on a question is necessary. Bumping and pinning questions allow more users to discover and look at them.
As always, we are eager to hear your thoughts!
