It seems that the more new users ask questions on SO, the more "bad quality" questions are asked as well. While I welcome new users, I think their questions should have a minimum quality standard as well, and this involves:
- Showing the problem they are facing
- Explaining what they have tried so far to solve it (research effort)
- Asking the question
Unfortunately, many questions seem not to meet these criteria. So I thought what can be done to improve the situation, and I came up with a separate "Ask question" page for new users, like this:
Showing research effort should be part of a good question, and this way new users will see that they have to show their research effort. This field maybe could also be made mandatory.
Once the user has gained a certain amount of reputation (e.g. 100), we can assume that he/she knows how to ask and show the normal "Ask question" page again.
What do you think about this? Would this be a good solution?
