About a month ago or so, some people might remember that I mentioned doing a quality review for this site for seeing whether RPG is finally ready to graduate. Well, it went pretty swell, but we'd like to see how you feel about the results. As such, we'd like to have you try your own run at reviewing the question set. So we're going to steal Aarthi's review template here and spice it up a bit.
Meta sites often see people discussing specific questions that have been closed to determine whether or not they can (or should) be reopened, but it's rare that anyone looks at questions that are open and answered. Are they better than what the Internet has to offer? Are we making the Internet better?
Here's a rough guide:
- Below, you'll find ten questions randomly selected from your site over the past 60 days.
- For each question, search the internet for the question as if you were the asker!
- If our answer(s) is good (complete, well-written, answers the question, useful, found in search results, etc) then vote it up!
- If our answer(s) is bad (incomplete, poorly-written, off-topic, incorrect, unfindable, worthless, etc) then vote it down!
- I've included my own commentary from my run of the review. These are in spoiler blocks. It's up to you whether you look at them post-fact just to see how your perspective compares, versus letting my views shift your opinion of the question.
Comment with anything you feel is worth noting, or to explain your voting choice. We have a rough guide to better/par/worse right here. If your result is par, make a choice to vote up or down.
Remember that our goal is to make the internet a better place. If you find yourself unable to decide how to vote, ask yourself: does this question and/or answer make the internet better? How you answer that question should determine your vote.
Talk to your fellow community members about how your site is doing and what you all can improve. Above all else, remember: this is a team effort!
Please note: this evaluation will close on April 9th, 2012! Get your answers in by then!
