Added: March 30, 2015....
I decided to make this a new answer rather than editing my other answer. Several weeks have passed and well, my thoughts have gotten a bit more... errr...... solid (for lack of a better word.)
TL;DR: - We ARE DesignSoftwareSupport.StackExchange.com. That's what this site currently is. When 80%+ of the questions are support questions, we are no longer about "design". If we don't make an effort, there's very little value in the site as it stands, with the exception of searching for answers provided during the beta phase.
We've been discussing this on meta for over a month now in various meta topics.....
I'd ask users to take a moment and stop to examine the primary "Questions" page or home page from time to time.
Stop and count how many questions you see which are truly about design and not asking how some feature of an application works or how to use some application tool.
The number of actual design-related questions is plummeting fast. We effectively are becoming designsoftwaresupport.stackexchange.com.
And by design I mean question related to line, color, shape, space, size, psychology, balance, form, proximity, repetition, contrast, etc. They have been (to me) clearly absent for a few weeks now, if not longer. Sure we may get 1 of these over a two week period which is worded poorly and lacks a great deal of effort. But recently, even that isn't happening.
I don't know what more can be done at the moment. So I will simply continue to down vote and vote to close. But I sort of feel like Sisyphus at this point. My voting counts used to be highly favored to the up vote side. Now, they are relatively close. It won't be long until my down vote numbers surpass my up vote numbers. (not the impression I'd like to give, but what else is there?)
The really ironic thing is that "Community" promotes unanswered questions. And guess which questions go unanswered.. yup.. the "how do I use software" questions. So even "Community" is unwittingly furthering the appearance of a basic design software support stack.
I know all this looks good for the "questions per day" stats and other items, but for me -- I'd rather see good questions than just any question. I'd be all for less activity if the actual activity was more valuable. But I do realize that may be my preference and may not be the preference anyone else.
I've answered my fair share of "My Adobe won't..." questions over the years in many, many online venues, including here. It has never been my goal to just repeat that at a new www. I was sparked and intrigued by a site which may offer actual design knowledge rather than just Adobe/Software how to items. I like a challenge, new methods, new perspectives. I'm sorry to say "how do I use this tool" doesn't offer anything new to anyone but the person asking the question because they are too lazy to ask Google and find the 5,000,000 answers already on the internet.
There's no balance any longer. There's no "design" here. It's all software support unfortunately. How do I use this, How do I make this, Why won't this tool do that.... the questions have become completely novice and beginner questions with clear cut, straight-forward, answers that really aren't geared towards new methods, perspectives, advanced knowledge, or detailed answers. Even looking at answers. It's very rare you see a long, detailed, answer unless it contains 10 screenshots of how to make something very specific because a user asked how.
If we received all the questions in the past year during the beta.. I don't think we would have graduated to be honest. We have great content in beta. Since then.... meh.... occasional glimmers but more mud than pearls.
I'd stress that I never wish to appear to be an elitist and I do not think every question needs to be geared toward advanced knowledge or non-beginners. However, there should be a line. A clear cut line. We all came to agreement over what was and was not acceptable for fontID and critique questions. Surely we can find a common ground as to what is just too basic to allow. If we don't, we'll need new branding for a software support stack, because it surely won't be about design for much longer.
All the above being posted... I will make an effort. I'm not just blowing smoke. I'll try and come up with more design related questions and post them to hopefully have some influence and gain more valuable content. I haven't given up, but it has become clear to me that without concerted effort things will continue to deteriorate.
