There are a number of proposed questions that amount to requests for service/software recommendations:
- What are viable alternatives to the GEDCOM format?
- How can I digitize my family's home movies from the 1960s?
- What is the best way to backup my genealogy data that's in my computer program?
- Is any census data for the UK available online for free?
- What are pros/cons of using open source genealogy software/sites (eg gramps, wereleate.org) over pay-for software/sites (ancestry, myheritage)?
- Can you suggest any genealogy related apps or go-to resources?
- Google Translate doesn't always give a good translation; is there a good resource for help in translating Slovakia Church records from church Latin?
- Is there a referral service to assist in finding a researcher in Slovakia?
- Is there a gedcom processing tool to find societies (for example, Mayflower, Brewster, Society of the Cincinnati, DAR, ...) eligibility?
While they're easy to ask (and easy to answer), questions soliciting a list of recommendations generally do poorly on Stack Exchange: very rarely do they provide more than short opinions and one-line recommendations.
While the occasional community collaboration, when properly managed and maintained, on an oft-asked question can be a boon, you don't want these easy questions consuming the site. Too many questions with a low barrier to entry tends to turn off the domain experts you need to keep a site going.
