Resource questions really do not fit on GD. We already have some that are outdated but in beta were in scope. A resource question relies on external links that could go down or the site may not exist after time. Case in point How can I start to learn web development?. The OP back 4 years ago asked a valid question and received answers, for its time, were in scope. Now it was brought back from the dead, and while Zach did leave a great answer his answer will need constant maintenance because the links could and will go down. Furthermore, the users that did try to assist the OP were downvoted now which I do not ethically agree with but technically on the definition of the downvote it is right.
Another problem I have with them is they are bait magnets for spammers. Too many fly by users post their site as spam and start posting the same answer over and over to related posts.
Reflect on comment:
Where can I find some re-distributable Twitter Bootstrap templates
that can be converted to WordPress and uploaded to WordPress.org
directory without any legal / license issues."
I have several issues when I read this:
- could be considered as resource gathering for a particular project
- Relies on external sources
- The answers will become outdated
- Templates are sometimes a disease to designers
- We already have royalty free source questions
