I regularly see guys pops up confused and frustrated with something that is purely based on someone's experience. for example, people usually ask "What is the best way to..." kind of questions.
This is something that is considered as "Not Constructive" by our community, but that kind of questions are sometimes pretty useful for newbies or someone who just want to kickstart without going through the phase of experiments and rejections before He/She can find the best thing to suit the purpose. Ok, not necessarily the best but at least it saves a great deal of time and resources.
Consider a questions like "Best Practice To...", I admit this question will rapidly turn from QA to discussion and then into a brainstorming session, and yes, It sounds like the OP was a retard and didn't even cared to google it. There are so many experienced bloggers with cutting edge skills and you can easily find a gazillion articles on this topic but believe me I'd prefer to look over SE over google. Every answer here is to the point, no random scenario, no long and boring story that you must read before you can actually find the part you need out of it. and the best part of it, there are opinions and outcomes which can easily be filtered out.
I'd quote this user from "Share your experience" type questions
The benefit of such questions is not to find an answer or to draw a conclusion, but rather to have a collection of stories that can help shed light on the issue with regard to trade-offs, consequences etc...
Or have these questions generally been considered too broad and too outside of the strict question and answer format?
So, I was wondering what would be the best way for newcomers to ask such a question ? Should they even ask this at first place ?
