I was looking for an old post in which someone helped me set “talking to” and “answering it that” and “asking” and all the other conversation-related commands in Inform 7 to the same thing. This is very useful for non-conversation-centric games where you just want NPCs to say certain things when spoken to, no matter how they’re spoken to.
I couldn’t find the post and have had trouble finding other old posts too. I’ve only been around since last September or so, so they shouldn’t even be a year old. Are posts deleted or archived around here after a certain amount of time?
