Yes... the webapp-rec problem again. Over the past few months we have put a wall up against new questions and deleted some of the old ones. But that's some not all, so seeing that we have been here for a year, is there a better solution we can give to the web app recommendation problem? Because every day or so, a webapp-rec questions comes in.
To play both sides (where before I was strong on closing these questions),
Could we allow recommendation questions based on whether they are specific enough?
Specific being considered on a case by case basis such that if a user sees a recommendation question they must try to aggressively edit it in shape or flag a mod for attention. If a mod deems, it cannot be saved ... it is closed as Not constructive.
The reason being it is indeed easy to find apps with a simple Google search though at one point does it become difficult enough to rely on WA?
https://webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/5018/need-a-blogging-engine-that-accepts-markdown Is this too simple?
https://webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/6445/web-video-sharing-service-with-fair-use-protection How about this one?
How can I send a fax online? And this?
The list goes on, we still have 400+ questions tagged webapp-rec so I think we need to be clear on this one.
