We get a large number of "What is this element?" questions, which we are great at answering, and provides a good service to the askers, but doesn't really provide much "long term value to the internet". What is your approach to improving these questions to avoid a wall of identical questions?

Based on some of the previous issues we've had with hat goals promoting a large number of very old posts to the homepage through edits, etc. I'm fairly happy with not driving too much hat-based prize giving ;). I guess things we might want to consider going forward are things like most improved rep/questions/votes given over the year - albeit some of those ...

I know this is possibly too much to ask for, but I’d like to review set 10278 Police Station (EUR 179.99) with a copy of 60304 Road Plates (EUR 19.99) to answer the question: what are different ways I can use the new road plates for my modular city?

If I understand it correctly, Winterbash is going to happen regardless, so people will be chasing hats, correct? That on its own will drive behavior that will bring up old topics with small edits and any of the other downsides of winter bash you mentioned. But perhaps instead of offering prizes for either meaningless activity (like the beforementioned edits) ...

I basically won my last two Christmas sets through this site, so I won't complain about the possiblity of winning real LEGO prizes through Winter Bash. ;-) However, I do understand that awarding them for random hats can be a bit problematic, since on the one hand hats don't always come for the most meaningful tasks. And on the other hand it also can have the ...

How would you handle situations with unwelcoming behaviour towards new users? Be it a blatantly unresearched question, a demonstrably false answer, or even a proper contribution.
