I think we/the mods should be stricter with question that show no effort.
I don't think we should provide solutions to questions that just state what they want to do but show nothing which they tried.
+ "This question shows research effort; it is useful and clear"
If someone obviously spent time for research and/or clear question vote up.
- "This question does not show any research effort; it is unclear or not useful"
For me this is an "AND + OR" condition. For some questions there is no "measurable" research effort, but it can be clear and useful - and visa verse.
I would like the downvote function to be used more frequently.
