I would like to challenge my peers on this board to maybe consider asking questions that are not Adobe software related but rather design or artistic related in nature. I would love to see some more typography questions (NOT whats this font), theory on design, contrast in color selection VS clash in medium, etc. etc. The goal is hopefully to add more content other than software. I love coming to this site but frankly I am getting a little disappointed with the feeling this is a "how to do X" software board and not design related.
I think it'd be interesting to discuss the merits of consolidating answers so that it's not software specific.
Let's say you had two questions like "How do I create bokeh in GIMP" and "How do I create bokeh in Photoshop" - do they need to be different questions? Can the question be "How do I create bokeh" and people can answer with different software? Then it's less about "how do to X in Y" and more about just "how to do X", which makes it more about technique than tech support.
There are plenty of cons to this approach, but I think it'd be an interesting discussion anyways.
Since I asked a question on Adobe I believe my Adobe challenge would be considered over and some questions I created for the challenge are:
I would definitely like to see some variability in our questions. And not only about technologies, or typography, or color theory. I would like to see more questions about being a designer, and about tools that you need to use in certain areas, about theory...
I, for example, work mainly with desktop applications (reason I posted this self-answering WPF question a while ago, just in case it helped someone). I have to resort to SO for code obstacles, but there's a lot I would like to know about recommended practices, and I guess about working in perhaps not so 'traditional' graphic designer positions. And desktop dev is quite traditional, there is more interesting stuff out there.
In any case, my point is, it would be good to have more questions about Gimp and Inkscape. And about equipment, and about typography. But I'd be more interested in questions about theory, about experience. Questions that hook you into reading them, and that make you want to participate in the site as well. And ideally, questions that blow your mind and send you flying to your software of choice to try out something new.
