I'd like to make a case for Easy Questions.
I sometimes ask something, and get a flurry of downvotes and get told to just Google it.
I find it a little bit dumb. I mean, isn't pretty much any question just googleable? The internet is far and wide, pretty much any question, even more for older games, have an answer somewhere that isn't Arqade.
And dont get me wrong here. I'm still gonna bash things like 'How do I press A' as too easy. But things like How do PSN levels work? yes the information can be found, but it's not an answer that is written in the sky it's so easy.
I think that mentality is stunting the growth of Arqade. If we just want questions that are not asked everyday, that are so unique that the information is nowhere on the internet, we have questions that are not googled often. And if they are not googled often, Arqade doesn't show up often in search results.
In return I see that blocking easy questions might be a good thing. With no easy questions, we don't have 50 questions a minute on the site, it blocks a lot of the noise that could be on this site. But on the other side, I think that those easy questions would, over time, sort themselves out. Yes we would have a lot of them in the beginning, but after a while, those questions would have been asked before. So they wouldn't just get asked again and again.
TLDR: Questions should be considered too easy when it's something so easy to know that you would doubt the intelligence of the asker to need that answer. Asking for questions that cant be answered by a google search probably slows the growth of Arqade in the long run.
