Following on from one of my comments on This Question, I think that we as a community can do a better job of helping the borderline questions improve to a point where they're actually worth answering and can provide continued value to the sysadmin community at large.
We certainly see a lot of BAD questions, but we also see many questions that initially aren't great but with some gentle prodding can make sense and eventually gain some decent answers that might help someone new to the field figure out what's going on.
Answers on a postage stamp:
- Show us the questions you think can be improved.
- Show us the ones that are beyond hope.
- Show us the shining examples of GREAT questions that we can point to as examples of what to do.
