I want to believe the user is genuinely trying to generate content.
However, I don't like it.
What does everybody else think?
Personally I think gaming.stackexchange.com should be a place where you can find an answer as to how to level X class of Y game in the most efficient manner.
Downvoting/Banning/Deleting these types of questions now only serves the purpose to get it out of your face when there are only ~100 questions on the site (admittedly annoying). But I think that eventually these questions are going to be allowed and answered.
Personally, I'm amazed at the number of down-votes and closes going on over things like this. You can't say that you're attempting to build out tons of content in beta so that it's ready for live and then knock people for trying to fill out the common questions.
Sure, I think it's probably some rep-whoring, but over all I think it's an attempt to fill that void.
Oh, and take a moment to look through the reasons for down-votes and closes - they're pretty much all SnA. C'mon guys, you're trying to build a "gaming community" with 99% of the people being developers (you know you're all here from SO, don't lie). Loosen up a little, when real gamers are involved it has to have a little subjectivity - we're not talking about (most of) our professions here; just our pastimes.
Do you want a gaming Q/A site, or SO: Gaming Edition?
I'm sure his intent is not to rep whore (though especially the WoW one will gather lot's of rep if not CW)
However, users should be interested in their question and actually care if they get an answer. So no, in this sense this is unwanted behavior.
But that doesn't make his questions less viable!
