I've seen a couple of questions now, of the format:
"I've got a load of old _______ and I wonder; what can I do with them?"
Personally, I don't think this is on topic because most of the SE network tends towards questions that can be answered rather than simply discussed, and a solution in search of a problem is a question without a clear answer (or an answer without a clear question). It doesn't contain enough context about the person's life/problems they face that need solving with a lifehack, it's just asking for an open ended list of purposes that substance or entity X can be used for. That might be helpful, but it feels more like blog/youtube material than something that should be on a directed Q&A site.
The example that stands out is one where the OP had a load of newspaper and wanted to know what could be done with it. I can think of loads of things, from lighting fires, drying shoes, cleaning windows, bedding animals, modelling.. I could probably go all day, but there's a very real risk that such an answer could attract a litany of comment responses from the OP saying "That's a nice list but.. we aren't allowed to burn here, i live in a desert and my shoes don't get wet, I have a window cleaner man, I have no animals, I have no kids to make paper mache for.."
So if there isn't a clear challenge the OP is facing that requires a novel use of an every day item, and instead they're just asking for a list of things to do on a rainy day with their surplus X, should I vote to close the question as off topic/send them to another (crafts based etc) SE?
