Recently I answered the following three questions:
I realized that these are all a particular type of question. I don't know if there's any precise term to categorize them, but I would say something like "they are the type of question that comes up when learning a sugiah" as opposed to just a specific question about a particular Jewish law or Jewish custom or Jewish belief. The questions are more about "figuring out a peshat" than getting a simple answer.
I quite enjoyed those questions, and I realized that I don't often see these types of questions on Mi Yodeya.
Two comments in Chat reinforced the idea that such types of questions might not be so popular here:
Unfortunately, I suspect that we don't have nearly as broad a base of readers/voters/editors for lomdus Q&A as we do for other major realms of Torah, such as applied Halacha and Parshanut.
[T]he question currently has 44 views -- looks like the title and opening few words of the question aren't drawing people in, so they don't get as far as the answer. Just speculating, but perhaps you can think of an edit that might improve that?
Personally, I would like to see more of this type of question. Is there any way to potentially encourage people to ask more of these types of questions?
I realize that some of the pitfalls of such questions are that they are inherently more "chatty" or "forummy", and often don't have a definitive answer. However, many questions on Mi Yodeya don't have a definitive answer, and it seems that these types of questions are still considered on-topic.
(Suggestions can include suggesting that it would be a bad idea to try to encourage these types of questions, or that my premise is incorrect and we already have a lot of these types of questions.)
