Similar to Can we create a "template question", but not exactly the same.
While I do like the idea of having some sort of default "guided question" feature (where the user could switch to the traditional free-form box), it seems the community doesn't agree.
Instead, what about a new page on the Help Center? We have a "How to ask" section, but it really only gives general points on how to ask. I've personally found this a little confusing when asking on a new site. This new page could look like a question, but instead be an actual template.
- Short summary of question (not the entirety).
- What is the original problem?
- What are you trying to do?
- What have you done so far?
- What solutions (if any) have you tried?
- What version of Ubuntu are you using?
- What are your system specs (relevant is better, but giving them all is more helpful than giving none)?
- Where did you obtain what you are working with? How?
- Are screenshots helpful? Provide them if so.
I think this might actually be of more help than what the Help Center has right now. I personally find specifics to be much more helpful, and I don't think they cause harm if they don't end up helping. A template question would allow users to have a general base for their questions instead of having to look at highly voted questions (which can be confusing to adapt), or the SE-wide general rules the Help Center has right now.
