Salvageable questions should always be edited for inclusion. The tricky part, as always, is deciding what's salvageable. In my personal experience, re-framing most "bad" questions to give them a PM perspective would go a long way towards limiting closures and migrations that aren't strictly necessary.

James, these are really helpful stats! Thanks for sharing them. To me, it sparks a few areas for further discussion, around the general topic of shepherding new users. Are new users being turned-off by the way their questions are handled (migrated or closed) i.e. how many of the users who had their questions migrated or closed remain engaged with the site (...

A few observations and suggestions about the "Ask a Question" screen: "How To Ask" is off to the right, with a pretty small font. Compare with the colors and font on StackOverflow. In fact, I didn't even notice it until I ...
