We have a few questions asking for recommendations of books, movies or the like, e.g.:
- Simple but interesting German literature
- Classic childrens books that are unknown outside of DE/AT/CH?
- What movies are good for learners who want to improve their grammar and vocabulary?
These question do have some value to give learners a starting point where to look for good and easy to understand material, and they have quite high views.
But answers to these questions are growing endlessly, as expected from these kind of questions. The more answers we have the less we will help visitors to find a good answer amongst the many. This is even more so as the voting system will always fail on these big-list questions and gems will inevitably be hidden somewhere amongst the lot.
Now what to do with these questions? Should we close them as "not constructive" (i.e. not a good fit to our Q&A site), should we protect them to at least limit clutter, or should we just leave them (running out of hand)?
