The sandbox questions don’t do any good if the proposed questions don’t get any feedback. I’ve referred people to this sandbox, and the idea is to get better posts. For that to work we need to discuss why a question is too broad or unclear, and help the OP edit it so that it can be posted as a good question.
But I see sandbox questions with no comments. In particular a closed question I suggested putting here for advice on improving—nada. With the influx of newcomers I think this is more important than ever.
So I’m posting this as a call for more attention.
Even if you’re not at the rep milestone for review tasks, how about doing a similar pre-view here?
There are tough things like figuring out why some questions are acceptable and others are too (whatever). If it’s OK, at least not that so the OP can see that the Q migbt be accepted already. Harder is tightening it up, but experienced members can at least grunt and wave in the right general direction?
- What are the right tags?
- Is the OP’s grammar and English of a high quality?
- Might this be a duplicate? Or not a dup enough to close, but older questions can provide input and allow the OP to refer to them explicitly and carve out a more specialized niche or compare and contrast with the other posts.
- Is the OP missing something vital? Being informed of the right term allows for effective searching on the subject, or a good general link can allow the OP to better research before asking, and ask a better question while using standard terms and linking to the reference material.
- Should the question be asked on a different SE?
No news is…
No comments means all is OK? Or did anybody even read it? A quick comment noting that these above checklist has been checked by someone would be good to note.
No time or interest to reply in detail? Just note the non-ok-ness at least, if nobody else has.
