I know it polls and there are no unequovical, definitive answers; however, it seems to me that there would be value to hear the opinions of various practitioners: pros, cons, what we do know about them in terms of hiring filters or performance indicators, etc. Thoughts?

  • Ok David, I still think we need more details from the asker, but let's try your experiment with the modified question: pm.stackexchange.com/questions/6161/…. I'll reopen, but feel free to edit further if we can make it better.

I do agree this question could be valuable. But right now, he's pretty much asking for a list of people who know project managers with/without certifications. As it stands, it's not valuable... but like you said... it could be!

I was hoping the asker would come back and maybe be a little more clear about asking for definitive answers. However, I see that's sort of tough to do because of the nature of the question.

I'm off work now and will spend a little editing time to see if I can push it back over the line of constructiveness. Feel free to jump into chat if you're around and we can maybe figure it out together.

As a community, we're still trying to figure out what's best for our site. If we can do anything to improve questions at this point, even if it doesn't make them perfect, that to me seems like a good enough justification to reopen them, if nothing else but to have more data to look at during evals.

Would it help if I indicated in the comments on closed questions that I think other editors could possibly help salvage the question? Would this help encourage more community editing?

I'm going to change the question a bit and try to guess what he's really after. Without the asker in this case, all we can really do is hope we preserve the spirit of the question.
