I have only really been active here for about 3 months, so I’m not very familiar with this site’s policies and ambitions. On some sites I participate in, there is a vision that seems to be shared, reflected partly by the comments certain kinds of questions get, by how quickly they're put on hold, etc. I don't have a good sense of what the vision of this site is.
Sometimes I see questions that are of poor quality, probably because of a lack of understanding of science in general or biology in particular, as with this question and this one. Sometimes it’s both, or there is some other reason to object to the question. For example, incomprehensibility. Sometimes a question concerns me because I know the OP can answer it himself with a bit more thought, or because an OP posts a flurry of similar questions about slightly different drugs that have the same or similar mechanisms of action. I see some good questions closed, and I don't understand the reason. Sometimes, I see comments that lead me to wonder what is expected in the level of expertise of users here. (I think there is more expertise here than is sometimes recognized.)
What is the vision this site has for itself?
I'm clearly missing something here.
