Since this site is in a Beta phase, I thought this would be a useful discussion to help enhance the site: What questions do you upvote and why? and then, by inference, What makes a great question on Science Fiction?
During this beta phase I've ask several questions but I can't yet see a pattern in what questions will get lots of up votes and which ones won't.
For example (high votes):
(Adding examples from other people)
- Has any science fiction work accurately predicted the emergence of future technology?
- Is the basic premise of humans as a power source in The Matrix reasonable?
- What are some good SF books by authors not generally known for science fiction?
(I think this question will also help us get clarity on the closing of questions.)
