This site is still a Stack Exchange site, a questions and answers site. While we may be a little more tolerant towards subjectivity than Stack Overflow, due to the “soft” nature of the subject, some limitations remain, like on all Stack Exchange sites:
- The format of all threads is one question, several answers, and comments only for minor remarks. There is no provision for extended discussion.
- The section of the FAQ titled What kind of questions should I not ask here? is the same as on all other Stack Exchange sites. While questions about SF are not always “practical” questions, the basic requirements remain:
If your motivation for asking the question is “I would like to participate in a discussion about ______”, then you should not be asking here. If your motivation is “I would like others to explain ______ to me”, then you are probably OK.
There's plenty of room for asking questions about Dr Who and other SF topics, it's just that since this is a questions and answers site, we expect that a question can have answers and is not just a discussion starter. Here are a few examples of dr-who questions:
If you'd like pure free-form discussion, we have a place for that: the chat room. On the chat, there are no rules other than civil behavior.
I'm sorry if your first experience with this site was not a good one. Please stick around, ask good questions and contribute good answers!
