Unicorn Meta Zoo #3
How do we grade questions?
(Originally published on meta Stack Exchange by Jon Ericson.)
Welcome to the Unicorn Meta Zoo, a podcast by members of the Stack Exchange community team. If you want to avoid spoilers, jump straight to the audio.
We're talking about whether or not there is such a thing as a bad question and how we might detect one if it exists.
- How is question quality measured in A/B tests?
- Ask a question template v1 experiment results
- “Ask a question” wizard prototype
Some users have generously volunteered to transcribe episodes on the podcast wiki. I'm extremely grateful for users who helped fill in most of the previous episode's transcript:
It was my turn to host and I think I'm not overly biased when I say that Abby and Juan do a much better job in that role. For one thing, I was pretty anxious that we'd end the recording before we ran out of things to talk about. Not entirely unrelated: I say the word "template" in a weird way.
It didn't make the recording, but Abby started talking to her cat right after we said goodbye.
