Many people on the worldbuilding website ask series of related questions when building a setting, either because they divide the work into manageable chunks or because they want to follow up on a previous question.

What would be the appropriate way to aggregate links to a series of related questions?

    $\begingroup$ Most people just link to the other questions inside each question. What else did you have in mind? $\endgroup$ – Tim B Apr 18 '15 at 12:33

Assuming that other posts provide context for the current post, the appropriate way is to link from the post where the context is needed to the posts that provide the context.

This does not mean that every question should be linked to every other question that relates to the same world one is building, or even every previous question posted.

Link to provide context, not to show off unrelated previous work. All your existing questions are 2-3 clicks away (click on the username, then click on the "questions" tab) for those who might be interested; that is plenty enough.
