This is the 3rd year of GATE Overflow. In the first year only few people were here. But results were awesome as 5+ people got to top 100 and majority were first time takers and from final year.
Last year majority of toppers here were repeaters. Rather many final year students stayed away from here as they might have got frightened by the answering of others.
This time also I suppose more or less of last year is happening. But more than that many people are adding lots of irrelevant and rather STUPID questions here. So, my question is how to clean them? I cannot let them continue this as this is not only affecting those who are asking these but also the innocent new visitors to the site. I have made a new listing:
which shows featured questions and even from any subject. I'll add more questions there and this will be like "absolute needed" for GATE. But this won't help the other mess. The options are
- Close all irrelevant or bad questions
- Correct them
- Add a "bad-question" tag
Also will add a "Mark as Wrong" option for Answers. We cannot hide/delete wrong answers as they might follow good discussion as comments.
