I recently posted a self-answered question concerning the strategies I use to beat Minesweeper games consistently.
Doorknob justifiably pointed out that the question could, perhaps, be a bit too broad. While I disagree with him, I do recognize that he has a valid point. This question is, well, questionable. It pushes the line between 'too broad' and 'not quite too broad' for "how do I solve this puzzle/logic game?"
So, I turn to the community! How broad is too broad? For instance, can I ask:
- About how to solve a Rubik's cube?
- About how to solve the last layer of a Rubik's cube?
- About how to change the cube into a snake pattern algorithmically?
- About how to solve the Petaminx?
- About how to solve Picross?
- About how to solve Minesweeper?
- About how to solve 2048?
- About how to solve Freecell?
Some of these questions require more broad solutions, and some of them could be summarized in a few sentences. These are the major questions:
- Where do we draw the line for 'too broad' with these questions?
- Assuming these questions are modified to be more specific, how specific to they have to be to be acceptable?
