Last thursday I asked a question here on WB SE:
and it was put on hold/closed because it was considered "too broad". A mod stated in the comments that there are many answers to my question and they are all opinion-based.
After thinking a bit and reading about questions that are "too broad" I had two thoughts:
- Maybe questions asking for a method to generate ideas are always "too broad" (because there are always a lot of answers).
- Maybe my question should have had a list of requirements the method/answer shall fulfill (to narrow down the spectrum of valid methods and allow one answer to be clearly the best).
So please tell me if one of my thoughts is correct or if there is something else I'm missing here. If my first thought is correct I would like to see if there is a concrete rule I'm violating.
I hope you can help me - I'm still learning how to use SE correctly.
