Introduction & Purpose
Some Forum members enjoy discussing rebalancing Heroes — others do not.
To help each Forum member find (or ignore) threads about Hero balance (i.e. nerfing or buffing), I’ve created a new Forum Tag: #hero-balance
Making Use of the #hero-balance Tag to Find or Ignore Threads
You can find these threads by searching for #hero-balance, or clicking on the hashtag link.
You can also combine the tag with other search terms to find individual posts, for instance:
#hero-balance Telluria (click to run this search)
#hero-balance DoT (click to run this search)
Automatic Notifications About ALL #hero-balance Threads
In your Forum Preferences, under Notifications > Tags, you can subscribe to notifications for posts in #hero-balance threads.
You have three options:
Watched — this option will automatically notify you of EVERY new post in a thread tagged with #hero-balance; this is equivalent to turning on Watching for each thread with that tag
Tracked — this option will automatically show counts of new posts in the “Unread” Forum tab, for each thread tagged with #hero-balance; this is equivalent to turning on Tracking for each thread with that tag
Watching First Post – this option will notify of new threads tagged with #hero-balance; you will not automaticallly receive notifications about subsequent replies in those threads, but can choose to subscribe to notifications for individual threads that you’re interested in
Muting/Ignoring ALL #hero-balance Threads
If you prefer to reduce your visibility of #hero-balance threads, you can Mute them in your Forum Preferences, under Notifications > Tags.
This will NOT prevent you from receiving notifications in these threads if you are tagged or quoted. If you wish to also suppress notifications, you must individually Mute each thread.
Enabling or Disabling Notifications for Individual Threads
As with all threads on the Forum, you can individually adjust your notification and visibility preferences at the bottom of a particular thread.
Muted – this will suppress ALL notifications, including if someone tags or quotes you; this is an effective option if you want to ignore a thread completely
Watching – you’ll receive a notification every time someone replies; use when you don’t want to miss any replies in a topic
Tracking – a count of new posts will show in the Unread Forum Tab; use when you want to keep up with a topic, but don’t want a notification for every post
Normal – you’ll be notified if someone tags or quotes you, but won’t otherwise get notifications or see the thread in Unread
Creating New Threads
When created a new thread about Hero Balance, i.e. suggesting or discussing changes to an existing Hero, you can apply the #hero-balance tag to help others find or ignore the thread as they see fit.
Helping as a Forum Regular
If you have earned Regular status on the Forum, you can assist the moderators by ensuring that the #hero-balance tag is properly applied to new threads about buffing/nerfing/balancing heroes, and is NOT applied to extraneous unrelated threads.
I’ve applied this tag to several of the existing Hero Balance discussion threads:
- Nerfing Telluria (Mar 2020 HOTM) ---> POLL IN POST #2; [Staff Comment Post #1461]
- Don't nerf Telluria
- Buff Jean-Francois (Feb 2020 Hotm)
