I think it would be useful to have a third forum where people could ask questions whose answers aren’t all that clear and where the element of debate would also be encouraged.
GQ would be a place for simple, direct, straightforward, completely factual questions.
GD would remain mostly as is.
The third forum would be a place for questions that are not clearly factual. Many questions currently in GQ certainly are not. It would be a place where questions would be asked not merely to receive back an answer, but to spark debate. It would also help answer the question, “well, i have this weird question, but should i be posting it in GQ or GD?”
I think it would be better if the two present forums did not have to share the role of carrying that class of discussions.
Also, i’ll promise not to pollute the new GQ. (but frankly i find the discussions in the current GD to be either cliche or totally off-the-wall)
