A few days ago I posted a feature request asking to block questions where the title is equal to the body.
Someone argued that there are SE sites that "do not require research". I think that he means there are sites where it's OK to ask a question that might be written in the title without providing any additional content, so doing anything that helps to trick the automatic checks is fine, like including the title in the body and nothing else.
I'm wondering if nowadays there are sites that have adopted this (questions without "details and any research" are allowed) as an official policy.
I.e., the Welcome modal for new askers instead of saying...
Asking a good question You’re ready to ask your first question and the community is here to help! To get you the best answers, we’ve provided some guidance:
Before you post, search the site to make sure your question hasn’t been answered.
- Summarize the problem
- Provide details and any research
- When appropriate, describe what you’ve tried
You’ll find more tips in the sidebar.
... says something different. I know that the Welcome modal for new askers could be customized, but I think that this is allowed to make it more specific, not to make it more similar to other "forums" (i.e. Quora, Google Products Help Forums, etc.)
By the way, is it possible to get all the Welcome Modal for new askers content from SEDE?
