I don't know is it crucial question, but I think it is important to mention discuss at least.
Being on the site for 5 months I keep seeing that biggest part (like 95%) of questions are belong to 2 categories:
- Here is a good puzzle I know. I solved it myself and want to share my pleasure with others. Try to solve it.
- I heard about this thing and just wonder, what would be result if ... Random examples:
All of them I would call "not practical". That means OP doesn't really want an answer to his/her question. This is not bad, since it still let people to store the knowledge on the site, but this is very untypical for StackExchange and leads to encouragement of things, which are usually not welcome on StackExchange, for example, skipping critical knowledge, which will help a lot to people, who want to answer the question; or skipping personal investigation of the problem.
Thats basically it. I just would like to know what other people thing about this situation. Hope such a question is ok for Meta.
