When flagging a post, one of the options is this:
However, upon clicking the “community guidelines” link, one is sent to FAQ - Sponge Forums, which is the FAQ page of the forums. That page contains only a link to https://docs.spongepowered.org/en/latest/faq/, which includes no information about the forum guidelines.
The way I see it, this can be changed in four ways:
- Change the link on the flag popup to the current location of the guidelines (also, make a guideline topic if one doesn't already exist)
- Add the guidelines back to the on-forums FAQ page. (slightly impractical due to it being called the FAQ)
- Add the guidelines to the Docs FAQ page (even more impractical)
- Remove the anchor from the flag popup and let the guidelines be implicit (impractical, may foster abuse)
Discussion is welcomed below
Note: TBot’s comment is in reference to an early version of this topic where I hadn’t yet had time to add any of the ways

I’ll stay with option 2 tho. Keep the guidlines in the forum Afterall, they are the Forumguidelines.
This is the forum we’re dealing with, so I guess it would make sense if the respective FAQ were the forum’s FAQ instead of Sponge’s FAQ; in other words, option 2. Did that make any sense?
I’d like to add that option 1 would also mean that the information could be found on the forums, but in a topic instead of the FAQ page. In my opinion this would be the better choice since what we’re looking for is a guideline page, not another FAQ.
Option #1 would be the best IMO.
I’m in favor of Option #1
There is this: Sponge Rules and Guidelines
It’s all down to Wheaton’s Law, apparently.
