The Stack Exchange concept is centered around factual, answerable questions. But there are also times when opinions are very valuable. For example, suppose I wanted to ask what circuit board layout programs people have used, and what their experiences have been with them. That's extremely open-ended, and clearly not correct material for EE.SE, nor does it seem correct for EEmeta.SE. But it's still a useful question, which this repository of experts is well-positioned to answer.
Is there some way to work around this? Some way to gather this useful-but-subjective information from the community, without breaking the structure of SE?
