Template:Good Question

SummaryEdit

This template is intended for use on talk pages where a question has been asked and an editor feels that there is no sufficient answer already on the site. Please do not add this template to your own questions.

The page will be added to All Questions Needing Answers, as well as a subcategory (see below).

Sample QuestionsEdit

What is the best sword?
This type of question should not be tagged. The answer can only ever be subjective and people will disagree.
Why were two guards attacking each other?
This type of question should usually not be tagged. Questions beginning with "Why" are often best answered with "just because", or the user directed to the appropriate page, such as the Glitches article for the TES game in question. There may be exceptions, however.
If one of the original Knights die, is their replacement set, or is it just a Knight randomly selected?
This one actually came up and is clearly something that would improve the site were it to be answered.

ParametersEdit

If no parameter is specified, it automatically adds the page to the Questions Needing Answers category, which is a sub-category of Needs Maintenance, however please add the first parameter (date) wherever possible.
