I've just had a look at the fastest FASTA/FASTQ question, and felt that it was a bit lacking in substance. It was an answerable, specific question, and all the answers seem to concentrate on a single them (i.e. the fastest program execution time), so in that sense it was a reasonable question to be asked.
However, the question felt a bit too divorced from my own world for it to seem like a real bioinformatics question. What I felt was missing was a bit of an explanation around why the question was being asked. Sometimes it makes sense to be able to code up something quickly, but other times the solution needs to be as accurate as possible.
Do we want to encourage more storytelling in the questions that are asked? I understand that there are many people who just want someone to get to the point, but am curious to know if a bit more context in the questions would help both new people visiting the site and people answering the questions.
