I had assisted in narrowing the scope of this question: What kite-surfing equipment should I start with?,
this question: https://sports.stackexchange.com/q/3783 , and this question: how to jump on a snowboard - beginner. However, there still has been input in regards to these questions being too broad.
On the contrary, similar and (arguably) less narrow questions were received favorably: How can I get started in golf? and How to start with halfpipe snowboarding? and Archery for beginners and Learning Cricket and Learning ski jumping
Are questions in the form/manner "How can I get started in [sport]?" on-topic? If so, how should one approach asking this type of question?
