Perhaps this is a duplicate, and I know this has been discussed on SO.meta, but I wanted to bring this up in the EE meta context:
Today we got several (to my mind) low-quality posts having to do with Arduino code (here, here): silly syntax errors, and things of that sort. Personally, I don't think these posts are particularly useful in the long term: I mainly want to see them go away, though it can be fun finding a solution quickly.
It seems that the preferred method that has been decided on for SO is
- Answer as a community wiki
- Then kill the question
What I have in mind is here, here, and there was a more recent one that I can't seem to be able to find. But given that EE != SO, I was wondering what are the methods that people here prefer for dealing with those questions.
The effect, so far, has been to encourage more questions of a similar sort (yes, small sample size). I don't know if it is a Good Thing, or a Bad Thing, or neither...
EDIT Meta\$^2\$ issue: I don't think I'll be accepting an answer on this one, it hardly makes sense with a question like that right? The up/down votes seem much more relevant.
