comment How can I tell how powerful an NPC is without being explicitly told?
Link-only answers don't make for good answers on Stack Exchange. We encourage answers to actually answer the question independently of their links, which usually means extracting the key information from that link and citing it. This is partly because of link rot, partly so that people get shown straight-up what the solution is instead of having to poke around in links. Imagine if the link goes dead tomorrow: what do you need to include in this answer for it to not be totally useless? You may want to summarise the other answer: what part is relevant?

comment How long can a conflict statement be?
Hi Ben, the comments I left on your other answer apply here too - this should be a comprehensive answer to the question. This is because we're a Q&A site, rather than any kind of discussion forum (I see from your informed badge you've seen our tour, so thanks), so inter-post discussion doesn't really exist. We need answers to genuinely be comprehensive answers.

comment Whose actions can I narrate in Polaris?
Hi Ben, while we welcome designer answers, our policy is that answers should answer the question independently. That means this answer should still be a full helpful answer even if Longspeak's answer disappears. In the link I provided, AlexP provides some guidance on summarising other answers if you feel you'd just be repeating them. An answer that's just "this other answer is right" plus some minor additions doesn't quite pass our standards.

comment Should the Mistaken be Secretly Colluding with the Moons?
Rather than saying your source is a published statement (which means you could be just anybody, working off a statement posted somewhere that's gone unlinked), it would be more useful to outright say you are the designer.

one edit of possibly more as I attempt to express this as a useful tool to pull out in this case.
