I just noticed that Git for beginners: The definitive practical guide was closed and locked just over a month ago with the note that such questions are no longer accepted by the community.
Is this really the position we want to take as a community?
Organizational and "guide" questions help locate duplicates
We get a lot of beginner duplicate questions - some object's value is null in C# as an example - and it's always difficult to quickly find the canonical question to provide as duplicate. Similar to the way that the faq is organized - as a meta question with links to all the common faq questions - wouldn't we find value to have such organizing meta questions on stack overflow?
This would make it easy for 3k and up users to find the canonical question - easier than simply answering the questions, which is what often happens now.
Organizational and "guide" questions can act as introductions to new technology
Further, it would provide a starting point for beginners in a given technology. There is currently no easy way to learn, for instance, Haskall on Stack Overflow. Yes, the site's primary purpose is to answer questions and solve problems, but there is a lot of excellent beginner material that simply lacks organization in a manner that would make it easy for beginners to start climbing that ladder. Those of you who have tried to learn a technology via searches and tags understand the problem.
I believe that the Git question referenced above serves both purposes for the very simple GIT usage questions, and I find it hard to believe that Stack Overflow does not want to incorporate such organizational meta questions.
