What's our policy for homework problems? I see people tagging them with the "homework" tag, but should we have a rule about it?
Stack Overflow's "How to ask and answer homework questions?" for reference
Given the SO FAQ homework section is mainly focused on software and lines of code, I do not think in its current state it is relevant to electronics and robotics.
Students asking blatant homework questions with no thought or attempt are generally immediately obvious, and cannot generally be answered to any meaningful level.
On the other hand, students working on projects and getting stuck with situations will be asking "work" type problems as they are building/fixing/repairing something so their questions can easily be answered by others and will only aid the students development.
On the flip side, even hobbist or professional could ask questions that fit in either bucket, the first being a new area that has not been researched via google beforehand or the later stuck on a real problem.
So in my opinion, I think we need a toned down version of what is on the SO FAQ more suited to electronic hardware. Furthermore the issue of homework questions is just not as significant.
