I've noticed that basically nothing gets closed, ever. If something does get closed, it's by a diamond moderator, not by community voting, and even then, it's hit and miss.
There also seems to be absolutely no discussion about what's on topic. The very first of The 7 Essential Questions of Every Beta is "Are questions about [subject] on or off topic?". Browsing through the newest questions on meta I see very little of this.
"Give me a list of [things]" questions are usually really easy to close. Here's a list of no-brainers from the 50 newest questions (all still open, and unanswered):
- What is the essential gear to have in a VHF/UHF FM base station?
- Where to find All Space Station Frequencies?
- Is there a repository of modern Amateur Radio transceiver schematics?
I feel that the quality of questions here is extremely poor, and I find the site increasingly boring. It seems like the intent is to be a forum more than to be a good Q&A site. The standard seems to be that anyone can ask any question that's at least a little bit related to amateur radio (or not at all), even if it shows zero research effort, is subjective, or hugely broad (please tell me about all the legislation in the world!)
What the hell, people? Are there not at least five people on the site that know where the close button is?
