The procedure to deal with homework questions with no effort is pretty well established around here: vote to close.

However, what about questions where the problem is laid out and then answered completely by the questioner? One such example is this about aromaticity. I don't think there's anything to add. I'm almost inclined to vote to close for "unclear what you're asking", but that doesn't seem right either.

Any thoughts from the community?

  • $\begingroup$ This was raised earlier (duplicate). I do share your concern and am slightly frustrated at the lack of resolution on the duplicate question. Personally I want to rework the homework policy to subsume such cases. That said, meta.chem is a slow-moving place, it takes a long time to come to consensus and especially with such a major issue, I think it will be a while before we reach a conclusion. Thanks for posting this though. $\endgroup$ Commented Dec 2, 2016 at 17:51

    $\begingroup$ @orthocresol Sorry for the dupe. Foolishly I searched for "am i right" instead of "AMIRITE". Kids these days. $\endgroup$
