In A question posted today, there has been a small comment thread concerning whether or not the question is on topic. Although, I pointed out that recommendation questions are definitely off topic, Pat Dobson had this argument:
I think that, due to the low numbers using this site at the moment, the scope of the site needs to increase. If this means allowing list questions and 'what's this song' questions - so be it. I fear if these questions aren't allowed, the site will die :( – Pat Dobson
I just wanted to get other opinions on this, and see if that's a direction users agree on.
EDIT: At this point, with a question stat that continues to decline, I think we need even bigger changes than the ones previously discussed here. Please see my new answer below - ChrisS
