It's quickly turning into Yahoo Answers.
Question quality is getting better. That isn't the issue.
The issue is answer quality.
Most users will disagree with me, but the quality of answers on that site is getting closer and closer to that of Y! Answers. Much of this has to do with solving puzzles. People will argue that solving puzzles requires lateral thinking, that there's no "one" solution. I can agree with that, but they go on, saying that since anything goes, anything is an acceptable answer.
This means we get extremely low quality answers that don't really answer questions well but sound like they were created by ignorant children. We get answers like the following:
I entered the maze, intrigued by the difficulty caused by the fact that the exit was blocked off by a wall. Attached to my belt, I had one less powerful grenade and two more powerful grenades. I was glad to find out that the walls were made of a less sturdy material, meaning that a grenade could easily knock down the wall. I tested the weak grenade on an unnecessary wall, and to my delight, it worked! I proceeded by using a larger grenade on the wall that was blocking the exit. Not to my delight, there was a police officer guarding the exit! I used my last grenade and ran towards the exit. I made it out of the maze successfully.
Like seriously, that answer sounds so stupid to the question, yet it still received overwhelming community support, at least more than I thought possible. Creativity should not be an excuse for low-quality answers.
Meta.puzzling.stackexchange is hard for me, because there seems to be less and less of a unified community support to enforce strong rules in the community. People are using the "it's a young site, it's a beta, it's a new site" excuse to let bad answers and bad questions off the hook. I really don't know where to take this. From what I can tell, the mods I trying their best to take care of this but it doesn't look like anything will be changed soon.
That's why I'm asking you guys. I'm not sure what you think, but I'd like to hear from your opinions what you make of this. I think it's especially noticeable when you have puzzling.SE questions constantly hitting the Hot Questions list, yet the quality you see is completely outrageous.
