The issue of "Is X (Il)legal" questions has come up recently (brought up by another moderator, but even so) but I suspect it's part of a broader issue – the law seems inaccessible to many, and questions about the law therefore become "can I do this?"
On Worldbuilding, they've composed a list of yes or no questions to guide users in writing a good post.
I'm wondering whether Law might benefit from a similar list of questions. This post is the first of a three-step process, a sounding board for whether we think that it'd be a good idea. If (after a little bit of time) it seems like people generally like it, we can then collect some questions, and then write up the post.
Remember, this isn't a panacea for all bad questions, but it would be useful if we had a community-curated list of ways to ensure that the questions are high quality and have meaningful and useful answers.
(Also, I know I said comment but in this case, I mean comments as answers, I guess.)
