On account of Should extremely basic 'how to do this in software X' questions be off-topic? I am challenging all regular members to post non software related questions. Post one even.
Some suggestions - a topic that interests you, a topic you already know the answer to, something from Google Scholar, something relevant to current design trends, etc.
To make things better I'll bounty every non-software design question we get this week (until Thursday since I don't come on during the weekend and my office is closed Friday) from any regular member.
Its come to my attention there's a limit on Bounties so instead of everyone getting a bounty I'll do a 150pt Bounty to the 3 receiving the most attention. JohnB and Vincent will contribute their three bounties as well for a total of 9.
With 3 people contributing for 9 bounties I'm capping it and will rollback further edits. I'm afraid it'll become regular members passing their rep to another regular member and we'll all end up the same. I'm less interested in rep-sharing and more interested in challenging all of you that are against software questions to pose better ones.
