I see a lot of 'spoiler' questions on this site.
"Who kills this guy in this film?"
"How many times does this happen in this film? etc etc."
The reason I joined this public beta is because, like many of you, I have a love for movies.
Here is an example question that I would love to ask:
"Who are the cinematographers that you would regard as seminal, and why? and regarding this, what are some classic films that I should watch to see their work?"
Now this question would not be allowed, because it is subjective. However it seems like this would be a GREAT place to ask it. Where else is there such a well structured site with such a great and knowledgeable fan base?
So my question is, will these kinds of questions be allowed? Or is this just going to be a site dedicated to movie trivia?
I'd love to be able to look at questions like this and see a big list of films to watch that people have talked about and decided on. A bit like this question:
EDIT - I propose we allow kind of list question on the site. I for one would love to be able to look up a question which tells me what the best anime films to watch if I've never seen any before, or for music, or some quintessential noir films, zombie films, romantic films etc.
I would also add that disallowing subjective answers on a site dedicated to an artform - which is inherently subjective, does not make sense.
The rule for non-subjective questions came from these sites being initially set up for technical topics (like stack overflow) where it is essential to provide factual, canonical answers.
