I have to admit, I've been here a month now and I still have absolutely no clue what most of y'all's goals are in patrolling posts.
My first question was closed for being too open-ended and multifaceted (too broad). Okay, lesson learned. Just stick to the facts and the (narrow) info you want.
My second question gave only the bare minimum amount of setting information to garner what I hoped might be a useful answer or answers, stuck to the facts and only asked a single question. Rather than answer the question or downvote for it being a bad question, a few high-medal individuals took the tack of trying to poke holes in my intentionally bare-bones description of the premise, while at the same time voting to close on Opinion-based.
While I have finally started to receive useful ideas in my second post, I'm left wondering just how many bars for entry there are and whether they're mutually-exclusive. In this vein, I have a few questions:
- Do tags play a part in your focus or how harshly you judge a question or change the rules with which posters should abide?
- Does wanting a reality-based answer require that the answerer like and agree with the premise before coming up with a logical/realistic consequence based on said premise?
- How much detail is too much and how much is not enough? Is there any buffer room?
- Is voting to close just the way you show you love someone in this forum?
