Alright, how can I put this right.
In my opinion, EE is not open enough to the variety of questions that can be considered electrical engineering. As soon as something is asked which differs from the usual analog opamp question, the question is doomed to be closed. This is how new users are being pushed away again. Why not allow for broader topics, this is no exclusive club where only specific people may join. If you don't like a question, there is no need for you to answer it, please -just ignore it.
To me, questions on microcontrollers are fine, questions on microcontroller firmware are fine, too. Questions on existing products are fine (see the Arduino question here on meta). In a time, where algorithms can be implemented in both software and hardware, why are no such questions allowed? Any other question which deals with at least a little bit of hardware should be fine.
Compared to Stackoverflow, the community here is so small, so why drive away all interested with being harsh (and the tone here often IS harsh).
Anyone willing to change that?
