Implied responsibilities of the OP

I think that there are some implied responsibilities of the original poster in a thread (the thread starter). These include updating the OP with any new relevant information and reporting inappropriate posts in the thread, but ensuring that the thread isn't closed. It seems that most people start a thread, but do not update the first post, leaving new people to read through numerous pages of potentially useless information. It is better for everyone if the OP just updates the OP, rather than salsamd doing it. Just saying.

Also the OP should post screenshots/video of the app. And at the least post a link....

Yes, link, video (if there is one), screenshots (if possible), and price should be given. Lite version too. It is easy to make a link. For example: you wrap [app] [/app ] around it. So: Tanzen. Usually works, and that was just an example.

How does it work for apps with a space in them?

It's also very annoying if someone posts a question and then afterwards doesn't join the discussion or say "thank you".

I think you just type the space. Try this and see if it works Tap Tap Revenge

Right. That is kind of dumb. And OP of spoiler/question threads should post the answers on the OP, so that people don't have to hunt.

You just have to type the exact name.
