We've had a couple of questions recently that look to me like 'list questions' — i.e. questions that will elicit a number of equally valid recommendations as answers (as per https://genealogy.stackexchange.com/faq#dontask). However, these may be sufficiently specialised that they need 'experts' to answer them and are unlikely to generate a huge list of answers. Are we happy to accept list questions that meet these criteria?
Recent examples are:
ETA: Two people have suggested the second question isn't a list question.
The tell-tale markers that made it look like a list question for me were:
I want to look for a reference work
So, is there a standard reference
both of which suggested the answers might turn into a list of reference books. The alternative (as Duncan points out :) ) is a single one word answer.
