Hopefully this is not a duplicate, but I have some concerns about this topic, and would like to share them.
I am a relatively new active member of the community, and I saw that the "elder" community (like, over 10k reputation) is quite strict with the question formats. Let's take my question from few days ago:
Why should I learn a microcontroller architecture?
I have actually quite benefitted from the answers, lots of experts have shared their experiences. I believe some other folks here have also enjoyed it, however it was put on hold for being "opinion based".
The only sensible reason I could think for that is "lots of people sharing their thoughts about topic so topic stays bumped frequently, which will keep other questions from being reviewed".
This site is home to many experienced engineers, and I actually want to benefit from their experiences as much as I can. And I believe this is needed more in EE, because EE subjects have steep learning curves, unlike programming for example, which you can try, fail, correct yourself and learn much faster.
Has there been any attempts to implement this kind of environment to Stack Exchange? If so, what were the repercussions?
