Aside: Please refrain from using the Official Rules Forum to suggest house rules.
No, I won't. And please refrain from going all Imperial Fist on everybody else, thank you.
I have been here since the subforum came into life and have posted enough on these forums to understand how they work and don't work. Socializing on these forums, including the Rules Questions subforums, just as an example, is completely okay and has been since day 1. If you don't like it, feel free, to report me because I will certainly not stop saying what I want to say just because another poster doesn't like it.
If anything, you could cut down on the redundancy.
Let me rephrase it then.
Don't confuse people coming into the Deathwatch Rules Question forums for official answers with house rules which belong in the Deathwatch House Rules forum.
For as long as people don't indicate any confusion, you have no point here. People who debate rules here and suggest house rules generally do so in a manner that readers can distinguish official ruling from house rule. It seems more like your personal desire to maintain a strict seperation which has never been strictly adhered in here - and which, quite frankly, not everyone here seems to be strict about still. Hence my reference to the Imperial Fists.
If you feel it necessary to post a house rule, put a disclaimer with it. The redundancy would not be necessary if a certain small number of persons would not continuously cloud the waters with their interpretation of how the game should be played. This section is for official answers to the rules, not to influence others to play your way. Answer their questions correctly, then let them decide how they want to play on their own.
This section is not for official answers to the rules, this section is about asking other players about "official" rules. If someone wants an official answer, there is a form for that at the bottom of this page under "Rules Questions". I'm sure that questions there will be handled in a business-like manner and not as an informal conversation between hobbyists. And if from a rules question a discussion about said rules spins further, that is just fine with me. The more traffic the better.
So, I reject your approach. If there is a good conversation about rules is to be had here, it's just fine with me. I prefer to see the House Rules section get used for more sweeping changes, like chapter rules, etc.
[Edit] Also, I am referring you to the first post in this sub-forum. Take the thing about discussion to heart.
