I peek into Programmers Stack Exchange every once in a while and I keep noticing a pattern: there are a whole lot of [CLOSED]-marked questions. What is behind this?
- Are people unclear on what is or is not on-topic for this Stack Exchange sub-board?
- Are the permissible questions simply too narrow in scope?
In either case, what can be done to make the front page look a little less uninviting? The way it looks now, a first-time or infrequent visitor will just see Programmers Stack Exchange as an unwelcoming place to ask questions.
