Although this has been a topic before I wanted to re-raise this issue as an ongoing concern in Biology.SE.
Is there something we can do to make the homework policy more visible especially to first-time visitors of the site? I feel like a substantial number of questions on the site are from users with no reputation asking clear homework questions with no effort. Sometimes I spend more time policing the homework policy than writing actual questions - granted, that is my personal decision, but I don't think I'm alone in this.
I don't know what the possibilities are within the StackExchange framework so I am hoping to gather some suggestions.
