The text for "Primarily Opinion Based" is, across all SE sites:
Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.
I'm mostly familiar with Stack Overflow, but I've tried to write this question in a way that doesn't exclude other sites. I'm looking for a fresh perspective.
There are so many questions that just want a solution*. And they get it, often without any explanation of why that solution is good.
I don't want just any solution. I want the best one and I want to be convinced. But nobody tries to convince me, so I rarely accept any answers.
I want to ask that elusive "good question" that asks for expert opinions based on facts. In a programming context, that might be a comparison of two algorithms, for example.
It seems like the divide between a "good question [generating] some degree of opinion based on expert experience" and something that needs to be closed as primarily opinion based is a slippery slope. At least that's what I've seen. If there are two sets of facts that lead to opposite conclusions, should the question be considered "too opinionated"?
How can I go about creating that "good question" without getting closed?
* On Stack Overflow, the term we use for these questions is "gimme teh codez" questions. I am sure that there are a number of "homework" and "do my work" questions on other sites.
