in reply to Considering "no effort" questions

Sometimes it's just as well to consider a node, as you did, with an appropriately questioning reason.

If the question really is interesting, and you've hinted at that in the consideration reason, you'll usually find the Monastery will vote towards keep and at the same time the node will start to get some answers.

If the question doesn't contain enough information or effort to stark discussion, it's likely to see more delete votes and the thread will die an early death.

I sometimes consider nodes that look like they're interesting but potentially "no effort" to draw people's attention to it for keeping and getting answers, rather than for the more normal quick death.

If you're not sure, consider it and let the Monastery decide - just let everyone understand your reasoning with the consideration text. Point other monks in the direction you want :-)
You might draw the occassional flame, but this "tactic" should work in most cases.

If the information in this post is inaccurate, or just plain wrong, don't just downvote - please post explaining what's wrong.
That way everyone learns.

[stevieb]: man, I absolutely LOVE driving in the worst winter conditions. In the mountainous roads, there are extremely few (if any) other drivers. I love the challenge. I've been doing extreme off-road my whole life, and as I said, I'm always well...
[stevieb]: ...prepared for even the very worst
Discipulus seems a part of the globe very unfrindly with Kawasaki riders..
[thezip]: My doggies love it when it snows
[perldigious]: As long as you are a good "boy scout" stevieb, more power to you... but I like my Jeep, and don't like the idea of rolling it or crashing it in to anything. :-)
[thezip]: Me, not as much.
[perldigious]: Mine too thezip, especially my German Shepherd. He looks like he is about to die of heat exhaustion all summer, so he goes nuts when winter comes and he can play in the snow.
[stevieb]: my main off-road vehicle nowadays is a strengthened mercedes ML320. I'm very hard on it, but I've never had any real issues at all (I love how small and light it is, and it has a very, very good centre of gravity for how I roll)
