I stumbled across the question today when in the review queue, and had some ambivalence about its current suitability. While the question as a whole seems site-relevant, it has the following problems:
The OP states that it's a polling question.
Hope you get the drift of the question. Obviously there is no right or wrong answer, just thoughts.
The question has 15 answers, but no accepted answer.
None of the answers seem canonical.
The Problems with the Problem
- The question itself is highly upvoted.
- The question has been viewed (or crawled) 4,758 in the past three years.
- Lots of other people have (historically, anyway) considered it an acceptable question.
Close, Wikify, or Leave Alone?
I was tempted to vote to close the question with a custom close reason, citing that it is a polling question without a canonical answer. Closing it wouldn't remove the content or anyone's reputation, but might help guide future visitors in asking more answerable questions.
On the other hand, this sort of question is probably site-relevant enough to justify turning it into a community wiki. That would still allow new and edited content, but would turn off the reputation spigot for what amounts to an opinion poll.
On the third hand—which all project managers need for juggling complex schedules—we can leave it as is and:
- wait for it to self-wikify (assuming Stack Exchange still does that);
- allow opinions to continue generating necro-rep; and
- deal with the spam and low-quality questions this question will attract over time as they appear.
Restating the Question
What, if anything, ought the community do with the question in question?
