I have had a SE account for some time now so forgive me if this policy is already in place.
I am curious if the tour is mandatory prior to asking questions? If not, has this ever been considered? Is there any consideration for also putting the MathJax tutorial in with the tour?
I've had the opportunity to get a good solid hour chunk here and there to watch questions get posted to the MSE in real time. What I've observed is that a significant portion of posts do not include the most basic aspects of what's expected, e.g. context/attempt, use mathjax, or ever accept answers. The impression this gave me is that people don't know how to use the site and maybe are not aware of the resources provided for understanding how SE sites work in general. In short, it may be a problem of education and not laziness. So are these policies in place or being considered?
