My main issue with how the site deals with 'homework questions' is about assumptions. I am an A level physics student and I never ask homework questions on this site. However I will ask questions about things I am struggling to understand. However these questions are often about basic things I need a greater understanding of but because these are basic questions people instantly assume it's a homework question and there for I get the old 'this isn't a homework help site' and then a homework tag is added, etc. When my question wasn't a homework question but purely a question most on this website would see as basic.
This could potentially drive away people such as myself who are learning physics at not an advanced level but still would like to ask genuine physics questions on SE.
There is lot's of talk on meta about how the 'quality' of questions must be improved which makes it sound like we're trying to push the site into an elitist form where a question has to be a certain level of complexity to be deemed 'high quality'
