We have lots and lots of questions on the symmetry of time dilation. That is when two observers are heading towards each other how can each think their clock is running faster? These questions typically come from people who have just started studying special relativity.
I think I have come up with a good analogy to explain what is going on, so I propose to post a canonical Q/A. A draft of my proposed Q/A can be viewed here.
But I'm aware that these canonical Q/As aren't viewed with enthusiasm by everyone so I won't proceed unless the consensus is that it would be a useful contribution to the site. To this end I'd like two things:
Firstly please upvote or downvote this question to indicate your approval or otherwise of the idea.
Secondly please answer if you think there are better ways to approach this. For example there may already be a question that is in effect a canonical question on the issue (I did look but while there are dozens of related questions I haven't found one that I thought a good candidate for a canonical question).
Thanks to everyone who voted or commented. I've now posted the Q/A (reluctantly making the names more sensible :-).
