I've asked a fair share of questions here, but only a few pertain to ideas I actually pursued seriously in a game or short story. Many of my questions are little more than a fictional curiosity to explore a world idea and I just want to see what other people have to say about it.
This prompts people to put a lot of effort into giving a serious answer, but I wonder if it's a bit dishonest to take advantage of this for a mere curiosity. I suppose some budding writer might ask themselves a similar question in the future, so it's not useless or anything, but it still feels... cheap... or something like that.
Should I actually go in with the intent of writing about it before I ask a question?
