I am confused about whether showing research is a requirement when posting a question on WebApps SE. Requirement means that if the OP doesn't show research, then the question must be closed.
- "suggested" doesn't mean "required".
- The vast majority of SE sites allow questions without research, and I never read any special show-research policy on WebApps.
- My previous attempts to ask a mod for a clear answer failed: I've asked the question to a WebApps mod 10 days ago and didn't get any answer. I've asked again 4 days ago one of my closed questions and didn't get an answer.
- If showing research was required, most questions (>80%, likely >90%) on webapps should be closed. Note that very few SE sites enforce showing research as a requirement: medicalsciences is one of the exceptions, and you'll see that most questions (~80%) get closed there because of that.
Could someone please make it clear whether showing research in the question body is a requirement when posting a question on WebApps SE?
