I'm having a doubt about how should we users encourage the participation of new members. So far I have only presented MSE to three of my fellow colleagues in grad school. In an overall way I feel like if MSE becomes too open and wide known, some of the high-rank researchers and top-class grad and undergrads users will be frustrated. Maybe I get this impression for seeing how some really complicated questions are well-received.
But today I saw someone asking some really simple algebra questions like "solve this equation for x" and started thinking what is the general feel of MSE when this kind of question arises. I'm not judging anything and no one. I just would like to get some opinions on this.
