Regarding the following question: https://sports.stackexchange.com/questions/1778/how-can-one-join-car-racings-officially-in-india
The OP made this comment about her question being off topic:
I dont know about that off-topic.. here I saw faq, it was mentioned that sports related questions are allowed.. anyways thanks for the link..
posdef has made a set of guidelines (which is open to anyone to add/edit) on How do I write a good question on Sports SE? but the above proves that our current set of guidelines are not fully understood. To this user's credit, she did check the FAQ.
I would like to incorporate the community's guidelines (thanks, posdef, for the initial set) and have them available for users on our FAQ.
To avoid a rehash of previous questions (see below), how do we, the community, approach users regarding off topic, non-constructive, ambiguous, or localized questions while encouraging quality and their contributions?
