First, this a long-term idea and I'm hoping we brainstorm(this isn't all-or-none). And please think about the overall idea, not a single implementation roadblock.
It seems that a lot of problems are because of newbies being newbies(I got this idea from here ). They're like babies though and we should have mercy on them.

- How format code properly
- Understanding the close-process
- Answering questions correctly
I think users should successfully take a quiz at the end too.
Of course this is just an idea, and it's not more long-term, but I hope it makes sense. Maybe it can be put on the back-burner?
