I've created a few questions about a game I play in, in the hope to kick start its community to use and appreciate this website. I'm unsure about whether my attempt will succeed, but I had to try.

Is it okay to do so, however? It feels a bit like content farming...


1 Answer 1


In my opinion, you should ask questions only in one of these two cases:

  1. You're actually interested in the answer
  2. You already know a great answer

I think that as long as the questions themselves are concrete and you fulfill one of the two conditions above, it's perfectly fine, even if it feels spammy. What I would not like to see are either a bunch of questions which are themselves not 100% okay (such as in the link you provided), or a bunch of questions that will remain unanswered and you don't really care about.

  • +1 specially for number 1. Ask what you want to know! Can't go wrong there (as long as it's on topic ;) )

  • Re: 1. I think I have :) I didn't exactly ask easy questions. We have a wiki for the easy stuff; this site is for expert Q&A. (Except for this, for which I had instead an adequate answer.)
