The post is now created, using the top 10 questions as of the 25th of may '16. But you can still feel free to add your helpful questions for interested users (make sure to use the template below).
Yesterday, a discussion on how to best educate new users on our scope came up. It was proposed, that we could create some form of checklist with a set of yes and no questions, that can help new users write good questions or improve on their attempts.
The final result could be something similar to this StackOverflow post. A set of questions that, if followed, can erradicate our most common problem sources.
This checklist could then be recommendet to new users as an easily understandible way to improve their questions. With a comment like
Welcome to worldbuilding! Thank you for your interest in this site! Have a look at this cool post that can help you improve your question in only a few moments with 20 short and easy questions.
I suggest we use this question to collect questions that could be part of this checklist.
To arrange things more clearly, let us use the following template fora suggestion, one suggestion per post, so each proposal can be discussed and voted on individually. The most voted results will then be collected in a post for easy access (with references to this discussion and the help center of course).
Question: The question you want to propose
Should be answered: Yes or No
Further explanation on why this question is useful + examples. This part will be added as footnote in the final checklist post.
