You love your site and we love your site, but there is a whole world of people out there who might not even know it exists. When they do find it, their first impression will either scare them away or keep them around. Given this, let's take a hard look at the questions and answers here and make sure newcomers see the site at its best!

Below you'll find ten questions randomly selected from this site. What do you think about each of them and their answers? Are they the best they can be or can they be improved? Would they look interesting and inviting to an outsider or are they a little embarrassing?

Upvote the corresponding post here on meta when we're awesome. Downvote when our content just isn't quite up to par.

Oh, and do comment to let everyone know your thoughts and take part in this conversation. :)

  • @J.Musser The best way to avoid a conflict of interest is not to go there. There's no lack of questions... – kevinsky Oct 21 '14 at 15:00

  • Good question to a common problem but the answers could have provided more ways to control weeds in pavers. Could do with more work. – kevinsky Jul 17 '12 at 15:26

  • There's a lot of good ideas in the answers but I'm not sure if the original poster felt they got the answer they wanted. Some people who ask questions really want a yes no answer and in the world of gardening there are few topics that have black and white answers. – kevinsky Jul 17 '12 at 15:19
