re: #help has had a makeover VIEW POST


I suppose my only comment would be that there's already a site that allows for rigidly scripted questions and answers - SO does this already, and the whole site is geared up for it. This feels like it could be more of a discussion or opinion based discussion to fill that gap.


You're right, and these guidelines are not supposed to be as rigid/scripted as SO, but unless people put the time in to properly structure their questions people won't be as inclined to help.

As for the discussion/opinion based posts - there are already tags (#discuss, #watercooler etc) that serve that purpose.

Happy to review/amend the guidelines to what most people want to see here, and I think the general consensus is this change was needed.
