We can not reject that the number of just-do-it-for-me questions has been increasing over time. The chance of seeing a just-do-it-for-me tikz-pgf tagged questions is higher than before. We have been doing the following to deal with such questions:
- Answer it as a normal question
- Close it as off topic
Now that the number of just-do-it-for-me is increasing fast, I don't think the second option is good in the future, when I think the site will be flooded with such kind of questions.
However, option 1 is also not good, because by providing a complete answer to a just-do-it-for-me question, we are encouraging people to ask such questions in the future.
So what should we do to deal with just-do-it-for-me questions?
I have two proposals:
- Continue closing such questions (I don't really like this way though, but it is opinion-based) and answering them if you want (well it has been discussed)
- Answer them not completely, even when we are in free time
I think I will probably apply the second proposal since now (actually I started testing a few days ago), as such answers will help the OP, but those answers also require the OP to do some additional research, and gradually it will teach the OP of TikZ-PGF.
To make it consistent, we should use only one of the above. What will you use and what do you think about this?
And, to make it consistent, if you generally use the former proposal, I will also stop following the latter one.
