This has been one of those see-saw topics for a while, but I think with stats we’re getting close to where option descriptions should start to be phased out. The only other thing that I ever see there is marketing copy.
Stats are still back-end only, but really, if there’s something we haven’t gotten to from the moderator panel it’s no more wrong to list it as a pro/con than add it to the option description. There are probably tons of old options with info in their descriptions that should be preserved until we can convert it to stats, but that doesn’t mean we still need the ability to add descriptions on the front end! (Assuming we can remove them from the back. I haven’t checked. But that’s a small problem.)
