Reading this Meta post Inverted pyramid format to answers I thought we could use a similar analogy to asking questions. It would encourage the asker to put some thought on the question rather than just repeating googled research and rephrasing abstracts.
It's simple if you think of each level as an abstraction layer and the length/area as the size of the audience that would be interested in reading at that abstraction layer.
So what I am really proposing is we encourage questions with a structure akin to this:
Layer1: Application/applied cognitive science/lifehacks
Layer2: Details of experiments, experimental setup etc.
Layer3: Probability of replication of the result, meaning sample population the result was drawn from, supporting studies among different samples etc.
Is it useful to prescribe that kind of question structuring?
We will have to probably edit some high voted questions to make them as good examples.
