Can we have a rule that says users can't overly decorate their questions/answers

1 vote

Recently I've seen users, mostly new, excessively decorate their answers/questions.

I'm not talking about little signatures, those are fine with me, but things like the following:

Rampardos

Rampardos

Rampardos (M) @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Mold Breaker
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Head Smash
- Fire Punch
- Zen Headbutt
- Earthquake

Rampardos provides a big attacking strength to MY team. Head Smash is a STAB
That is very neccessary. Fire Punch and Zen Headbutt are coverage. Earthquake is also coverage.

Rampardos is key in my team without him I would always lose

Don't replace Rampardos on my team I need HIM on my team

Or all of the text would be bolded like this:

Rampardos is a very frail Pokemon who can hit HARD

I know this might get rejected and I hope i'm not the only one who thinks this excessive use of "decorations" needs to stop.

It's kind of already an understood rule under spam. If stuff likes this comes up, it'll be dealt with.
Yea Good Question.
Overload, you're one of the users who does this type of thing.

As DT said, this is already an unwritten rule. It's mentioned here: http://pokemondb.net/pokebase/meta/12536/implied-rules

Images are fine as long as they are not huge, and used sparingly. And kept to a minimum on the moveset questions because they have many answers.
