Worldbuilding is an amalgamation of dozens of topics, geared toward building fictional worlds using expertise that pertains to those topics. Usually, this system runs smoothly. However, sometimes questions don't just call for expertise - they're worded so that only a true expert can understand them.
- Is blood pressure a good restriction? uses words and phrases such as hypertension, hypotension, syncope, CNAP monitor, vasculitis, and Kawasaki disease
- Dyson-Harrop to power an ion engine? includes VASIMR, Dyson-Harrop, ion drive
- Iron deficiency Anemia due to illness, Management? touches on sideroblastic anemia, erythroblasts, hemolysis, polycythemia, granulomas, and hemochromatosis
Many of us recognize some of the above words / phrases, but few of us know all of them. When they aren't explained, or even linked to, in the question, answering can be nightmarish.
Most of the time, users most qualified to answer will be able to understand the question, but there is always a risk that good answers will be lost after someone is alienated - only because of vocabulary.
What is the best way to handle these questions?
I feel like it's inappropriate to VTC as "unclear what you're asking" because a quick Google search can explain the question, yet these questions are also unnecessarily difficult to answer only because of how they're worded.
