I am here today to ask for a monumental change.
- A section that asks the user what they have tried
I feel that question quality could improve dramatically and members can help others faster, rather than waiting for the OP to post what they have tried or what system/language they are using. I would like to propose a required section on the Ask Question form that, if the question is programming related, requires the OP to post code of what they have tried. As a topping, could the tag section expand with "include the system or language your using?"
This would alleviate the need to comment, "What have you tried?". I assume it would significantly decrease the number of low quality post flags, allowing moderators to focus their energy elsewhere.
This is a very basic mock-up of what I would love to see:
