During the town hall I asked a few questions about types of questions. Part of that is because I feel like a strict and literal adherence to the rules means good questions would get closed before we can see where they will end up. Some of the best questions that led to the most interesting answers in the early days of SF&F would likely be closed now because of the current rules.
But we also discussed in chat how the best way, sometimes, to figure out how to handle different types of questions or avoid question formats that we have ruled out (like list formats or speculation) that it may take test questions that will have to be edited or altered or experimented with to figure out what works and what doesn't.
I've posted an example question that touches on something I'm interested in. My hope, while the title seems more like just an eye-catcher, is that people will read the question and think about it and not just grab a quick answer and post a link to something online.
I feel like answers are becoming, more and more, just wiki spam, so one intent was to force people to think before just posting a quick bit of speculation or grabbing one source, or in this case, one mythos (the subject is werewolves) and say, "Here's the answer!" I'm also hoping that by asking for more thought, it prevents list answers where each person lists one or two franchises or mythos instead of analyzing the situation and trying to synthesize the answer. (Or maybe I'm just being too pedantic, pretentious, and expecting too much.)
So please, if you have ideas, help me with what would turn this question into a good one that will work well here on SE:SF&F.
