Clickbait topics and Cheapest Build Guides

Please stop posting these - they will be deleted. The title should be an entire thought/question/comment and not something like "Do you guys love when..." Build guides where users simply pick the lowest cost items will be deleted/blocked in the same manner we delete/block most expensive guides.

These posts are getting out of hand and continued spamming of the off-topic forums with them will result in commenting bans. If you see them posted, please simply report them and move on.

OT is officially the second forum to have 2 posts pinned, and both of them are about stopping spamming. GJ guys.

Thanks so much for the cheapest guides getting removed, that was just getting out of hand. Imma go delete mine this instant.

My intentional clickbait thread was supposed to instigate a ban on this stuff, unfortunately I never got to see how the thread worked out itself but glad to see that they are banned :)

Mani, I think you're a freaking great mod by the way. This website has some of the best forums, due in part to the great staff and great users. I'm honestly glad I decided to be a part of the forums after all this time using this site.

Better late than never... :P

Any chance you/someone will do some cleaning of the existing threads?

And...

Build guides where users simply pick the lowest cost items will be deleted/blocked in the same manner we delete/block most expensive guides.

Now, I know like 99.9% of them are trash guides and all, but what about the one in a thousand that actually are well done?

Mine was pretty good IMO, but I deleted it myself anyways. Even FACUNDO's newer one that got a lot of support really shouldn't be around anymore.

Seems like your filters took my minecraft guide down but left the horribly expensive and completely incorrectly made one up.

It might be from the overloaded cashe bug.

We've got a build guide bug that is affecting the index. I've been out of town but am back now - hopefully I can get it fixed today/tonight.

Are you posting the cheapest build possible on pcpartpicker regardless of quality, performance, or usability, without a real description going over the part choices and isn't intended to teach anyone anything whatsoever? No? Then it's fine.

This topic is entirely unrelated to the build guides.

This topic only applied to builds guides which are no longer publicly indexed.
