I just saw this: Any websites with exhaustively long lists of dead planet types? on the homepage. Seems like it's​ just asking for a website with a list of x.

I know this sort of question is frowned upon on Stack Overflow because they tend to attract lots of link only answers and there's rarely if ever any one good/useful answer...

So... How does Worldbuilding community feel about requests for off-site resources?

  • $\begingroup$ @Journeyman that's why I asked. I didn't see it as a close reason here and wasn't sure if this community might have a different perspective. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Mithrandir24601 I would go as far as to say that it is a duplicate. The comments to worldbuilding.stackexchange.com/q/56386/29 have a number of relevant links. $\endgroup$

We have a tag.

So it's different, but kept separate, and we seem to like it OK.
