I just came across this question, and thought that it seemed very open ended and hard to answer "correctly". Is it a good question for this site? If so, why? It is one of the highest voted questions on the site but in my opinion, it is not one of the strongest.

What are the differences in punctuation between German and English?

    I asked the question in my naïve belief that there were just a few differences. As toscho says, it would make a good community wiki. As of yet, though, there are only 3-4 unique differences listed in the answers.

  • No disrespect. I wouldn't have brought it up if the site wasn't only half a day old :)

It is a good candidate for a community wiki. Besides that, it is a question most readers can learn from. Open questions aren’t bad automatically.

  • Thanks for the comment. I guess it's not such a bad thing that there probably wont be one correct answer.
