How to RotoKnow
RotoKnow.com was created to bring the fantasy gaming community together to share knowledge; providing at once a resource for those seeking reliable advice and a platform for industry experts to build their reputation. Rather than scouring the web for lengthy articles that often don’t answer your question directly, RotoKnow gives you a place to ask specific questions and get targeted answers from the best minds in the game.
Use descriptive titles that summarize your question in 10 words or less. Examples:
Including a detailed description of your question is very important for several reasons. Most importantly, it will aid responders in giving you a more accurate and fulfilling answer to your question. You should include any relevant background information such as league format and scoring, your position in the standings, information about your current roster, your opinion about the questions at hand etc. Adding a detailed description is also very important to RotoKnow’s search engine optimization. The more valuable content you provide, the more likely people are to find your information later. Examples:
“I was offered Pujols for Teixiera and Greinke in my 12-team keeper league. The league uses a standard 5×5 scoring system. We are only able to keep 10 players and I already have a very deep pitching staff that includes Felix Hernandez, Tim Lincecum and Cliff Lee. I am currently in 7th place and ready to rebuild for next season, so I want to consolidate my keeper and put together best set of 10 I can. Pujols’ recent health problems scare me, but he has looked great since returning from the DL. Should I pull the trigger?”
RotoKnow is not meant to function as a message board or forum. Please use proper punctuation, spelling, formatting and grammar when posting. Some common mistakes to avoid are:Â typing in all lower-case letters, run-on sentences, cursing, internet slang (lol, brb, ttyl) and emoticons or text emoticons.
The use of tags helps group your question with similar questions so that other users and contributors can find them more easily. The tags you choose should highlight key details about your question. It is best to use tags that don’t duplicate words already in your title or description. For example, here are bad/good tags for the question “Will Jacoby Ellsbury Continue to Run This Much All Season?”:
ellsbury, baseball, mlb, fantasy
- If your question is not receiving answers right away, please be patient. Do not post your question more than once in order to draw attention.
- Questions are posted in chronological order and will not “bump” to the top of the page with new comments. Please do not comment in an effort to “bump” your question.
