This site is about fantasy role playing games. These games are games in our minds. Their worlds is the product of imagination.
If I ask something about these world, it is not like if I would ask, for example, is the pilot cabin door hermetically sealed in a large passenger airplane. This question has a clear answer: yes or no. It is not about how do we feel it better, should it be sealed or not. It is not like how do we imagine the cabin doors or a passenger plane.
It is a very clear thing: they are either sealed or not. Anybody working on planes, or knowing their technical documentation, can answer this question and it will be a clear, well-defined answer.
The passenger planes don't exist only in our minds, they are very clearly defined objects in the objective reality. It is exactly the opposite as the things are in the RPG worlds.
The case is exactly opposite if I ask, was the Ravnos antediluvian a wight. The idea that he was a wight, it was my invention. I knew very well, that there is no canon answer for that, and that probably even the RPG developers of the White Wolf didn't consider this possibility.
What I really wanted: people knowing better the canon, the rules, and anyways: the people having much better imagination of that world, to share me, what do they think about that. What I asked, was very clearly not what I asked in the first example. I asked for: how do we imagine that, how does this look better, what are the pros and cons in the case. Essentially, I wanted to validate my opinion against the opinions of others knowing much better the WoD as me.
Of course this was exactly what I couldn't ask. It had been closed on the spot as opinion-based question.
So I inserted a beautiful image into the question, and formulated it as a question for game mechanics or canon references. A close vote was - as nearly always - initiated, but fortunately the question survived it. The result was a popular question, which - on my opinion - added some valuable to the site and didn't harm it. It made the site better and didn't worsen it.
So, the topic of this SE site essentially differs from the other SE alternatives: most question what people would ask, don't have an "objective" answer here.
The engine of the SE can handle this. Everybody could write his/her, maybe contradicting answers, and then the voting counts and the pipes will decide, which is better.
Of course there are really opinionated questions, for example a question "Why is dnd4 so terrible?" shouldn't be allowed here.
So, I suggest to make the VtCs lighter.
The growth of the site, and the future of the site, depends on the newbies. And they need to work often irrationally hard to ask their questions on a site-conformant way because of rules invented for very different topics.
