- for strange or uncertain ideas where you are not sure where to post
- for unprepared, exploratory or spontaneous posts without details
- won't show up on forum's frontpage/main page, among other posts
- is sorted by users instead
- examples of shortform content
In comparison to that, a full post is shown on the front page / main page.
Could not find answer when searching for this (or similar) query in the forum. This is likely explained as part of the writing introduction posts, but somehow doesn't show up as a search result. Since it's a basic question, the answer should be easily accessible.
So would probably be good to rename the title of the respective post with explanation to above; or add the full question inside the post content. Alternatively, I can add the commented answer into this description. So next person can easily find it. :)

Thank you in advance.
Thank you. I'm quite surprised the forum user manual didn't show up as a result when searching for it. Even now if i search for "what is shortform" directly, I find my own post here, but not the manual.
I vaguely understood what shortform posts are now, and edited my post according to that. Please let me know if I misunderstood it.
