I don't want to rehash old arguments about the validity of these types of questions, since they're generally accepted as being on-topic for the site.
However, it seems like a good percentage of them require us to prompt people for way more information than they initially provide. I don't really think there's a good way around this (as it essentially requires that a person read documentation prior to posting something, which never happens).
I think though that it might be a good idea to have a general set of questions we can point to that say "this information is useful, please provide as much of it as possible so we can answer your question."
I got this idea from this thread over on the xkcd forums. They have a little template at the top of the forum thread that people can fill out with general information about the game they're searching for.
The use case for this template would be that if an ITG question pops up which has insufficient detail, we could link to a meta post in the comments, thereby giving the asker an idea as to what information would be useful if they could provide it. Having one standardized location would mean that we could keep it up to date, and always cover the broadest possible set of ITG search parameters.
What does everyone think? Is this worth doing? If so, we can repurpose this question with a wiki answer, perhaps, if that's the best route.
