I'm puzzled why sometimes very short answers to story identification questions get upvoted so highly. Sometimes there is only a title - with no justification as to why that is the correct answer. This concerns me because I think we ought to "show our working"; isn't this a fundamental part of a quality answer?
- Story ID: Teleporting Castle
- Fantasy movie from 70's, or 80's maybe early 90's
- What is this Disney scifi movie from the late 80s/early 90s?
For reference / comparison, when I answer one of these questions, I try to answer each of the points in the question:
- Help me to find the title of this movie
- Show about a man who is held prisoner in a secret place where very peculiar things happen
- Scifi novel from 90's with AI, robots, and a holodeck-like room
So my questions are:
- Why do some one line story identification answers get so many upvotes?
- Do others recognise this as a problem?
- How can we solve this? Should we simply be more strategic in our voting?
