I couldn't find any discussion on any other stackexchange site on whether asking too many specific questions is good or bad at the beginning of a site.
My concerns are:
- There may not be enough experts in certain fields to answer the hard questions. This may lead to guesses or questions left unanswered for a long time.
- The hard questions may be what draws in the experts, so having unanswered questions that an expert can immediately answer may help to hook them.
I haven't really seen any issues with (1), but I could envision that someone new looking around the site would be turned off by seeing highly rated questions remain unanswered.
Point (2) could go either way. Currently, some of the questions with the most views are more general questions. This might be good to get a wide range of users, but it might turn off some of the experts.
I haven't been involved with the betas of any other sites, so some of my feelings may be based on how the site currently works and not how it will eventually work.
This might be me overthinking things at the beginning.
