I've stopped contributing to the site as much as I was previously as I could have found myself writing incredibly specific tutorials for individual people. I'm not sure that's right. If I wanted to contribute tutorials, there are countless website I'm sure would take them off my hands.
I came onto the meta site as I saw a large number of closed questions, and a question about this was at the top. However, in writing about that, I've found myself with more questions than answers.
There are a lot of 'What's the font?' questions - why not go to MyFont's 'WhatTheFont' service? There are a lot of 'How do I do [this effect] in [software package]' questions. Why not look for an already existing tutorial on it? There's bound to be one, or, better still, play about the the software and learn by experimentation, that way you'll remember it.
Closing questions is probably correct, but perhaps the descriptions as to why they've been closed need to be improved. It puts users off and a site is nothing without users, no matter how 'beginner' they are.
There needs to be more of an emphasis on 'I want to achieve good results in [blah], how have you done this' questions, so people can benefit from more experienced users' experiences.
Sorry if I've been a bit rambling in this, perhaps my question is lacking direction as well! I hope you understand my points and frustrations, though.
To finish on a clear, answerable, question though. Where is this site going? Is it a tutorial request site? A font identification site? A place where graphic designers who, when faced with a practical question as to how to achieve a result when designing an advertising flayer, for example, can turn to ask other people how they went about it and why the results were good/disappointing or so on?
