Questioners on AskUbuntu have a vast range of skill levels, ranging from barely being able to point-and-click to walk-on-water (thinks in programming languages, knows how most of Ubuntu/Linux works).
It would help me (and other Answerers) if a Questioners skill level were visible, so I (we) can adjust our answers (or our choice to answer or not) based on it.
I've spent time crafting an answer involving command line magic, only to have the Questioner respond with something like "What is that
| symbol of which you speak?"
I believe that AskUbuntu should offer assistance to people of all skill levels, but it would be easier to answer helpfully if we knew where on the Novice to Shark spectrum the Questioner fell.
Maybe a slider in the Questioners' profiles, or a per-question checkbox, or something else, would do the trick.
