I posit the following:
- Most circuit questions on this site can be easily answered by drawing a circuit diagram, so asking a circuit question without a diagram often bumps up against the homework policy (i.e. show your effort).
- A circuit diagram almost always makes a circuits question easier to understand.
- The point of this site is to create useful content. Circuit questions are more useful if they include a diagram.
With those things in mind, I propose that we add a rule that circuit questions should include a diagram. I personally want this so that I can direct users who ask circuit questions to an authoritative statement indicating that they should include a diagram.
Yes, I'm grumpy about this issue right now, but I still think it's the right thing to do. What do you say?
