Help Sections of BYOND Forums like StackOverflow?

I really think the BYOND forums should take a lesson from StackOverflow.
At least in the rules department.

Those aren't rules, those are guidelines and tips, which we do have:
StackOverflow, like BYOND's help sections, does get questions that don't take these tips into account generally speaking. However unlike StackOverflow, we do very legitimiately get a bunch of users who are not very well versed in expressing their question, understand the area they wish to ask a question about or entirely grasp the concepts involved in the answers they might receive. The current moderation style for out help sections are as such to ensure some answer at least is achieved for most questions, and a learning experience is the result for many, conceptually.
StackOverflow does not deal with conceptual questions very often by their design, we however do.
