I've posted two questions recently that don't seem like good SE-style questions. The first in particular has generated a lot of discussion, to the point where SE now prompts me to move the discussion to chat instead of leaving another comment.
For the sake of the beta, does it make more sense to move these to chat? Could other "too discussion-y" questions be good seeds for workshop chats?
Organizing Research: brief subscriptions or research trips
The embedded question 'how can I scrape my download history' and my self-answer is really more appropriate for something like SO (I did search there before posting here, but didn't see anything at that time which would have solved the problem). The larger question of how others here organize blitz-style searching call for 'these are the solutions which exist' answers which aren't really the SE way.
Finding parish marriage records, where the real answer to the question is, if I and ordered the GRO certificates, I would know which parish was involved (if any), and I've created a brick wall for myself by not wanting to spend the money ordering the certificates (Arthur and Fanny's marriage, and their eldest daughter's birth). But now we're just nibbling away at working the problem, which does seem more appropriate for chat.
If I were dictator of SE, I would create a third area (comparable to Meta) which could act as a Q/A purgatory for questions like this. It would be a place to park the Q/As until the useful information could be extracted for properly focused questions.
