Anti-Cluelessness Test

Before posting in a certain category, users must pass a knowledge test relevant to that category.
  (+2, -10)(+2, -10)
(+2, -10)
  [vote for,
against]

This would reduce the number of posts which exhibit limited understanding of relevant knowledge, especially in the Other category.

A multiple-choice test, scored electronically, would be relatively easy to implement, though likely still more work than its worth.

       That would kinda rule us all out, n'est pas?

       if you had that, then you wouldn't have this.

       how would you do in this category?

       there is a halfbakery:category category that this would fit into. you failed your test.

       oopsie. um...   

       A test is also a learning opportunity-- if I had failed a hb category knowledge test, I would have learned what was relevant instead of bothering you with my cluelessness. Should this go into hb: account? hb:voting?

       [snictown], i gave you a proper category already. look at previous anno.
tcarson, Jul 09 2006
  

       ok, moved to hb:category. I didn't put it there at first since my idea seemed mostly relevant to posting or user restriction and not specific to any one category. However, I flee from the fishbones.

       Well when it comes to Food:Cereal:Shape, I think I can hold my own, so I suppose I'll be posting all my ideas in there from now on. Hmm....fishbone shaped cereal?

       Do not flee the fishbones, it triggers their chase respone.   

       + to zenxag's anno
