I read the transcript, so I thought a list of the main ideas collected from the chat session would be useful. Furthermore, it could spark some debate about them.
- Seed questions - not allowed but potentially useful.
- Simple questions atract more people but discourage experts vs hard questions atract less people but hopefully experts.
- 'The important thing is questions that can be answered in a high-quality way' (even if they are simple questions).
- Upcoming posters for promotion.
- Get promotion by getting relevant blogs and other sites to mention the site.
- Rely on the Stack Exchange team to get needed support.
- Maybe go over some of the better questions and improve their titles.
- Asking elementary questions that require expert answers (how?).
- A great answer could be not recognized as such by the asker (e.g. why the sky is blue? maybe the asker doesn't want to hear about the Rayleigh scattering).
I didn't make reference to whom the question originally "belonged" (as I found that a bit cumbersome and frankly unnecessary). As David already wrote in the original post, the transcript can be found easily, in case that information is needed.
