I've noticed that there are quite a lot of questions on site that are either very difficult to answer because:
- they're too general (i.e. don't focus on one particular problem or methodology)
- they're unthinking (i.e. are not logically reasoned or carefully thought through / are 'bad' questions)
- they're too specific to be generally useful (e.g. soliciting critiques on sites).
This has led me to wonder what could be done on site to raise the general quality of questions. I think there's a danger that the site could suffer (and risk alienating knowledgeable members of the wider UX community) if the number of non-useful questions greatly outnumber the useful.
I realise that it's important to ensure that the community grows, and that new users are made to feel useful - but part of me strongly believes that the situation needs to be improved if the community is going to grow to become an authoritative source of UX knowledge.
