It feels like the only acceptable questions I can write are those that fit to a narrow ideal outlined by the website administrators.
This question is better addressed in meta as its not really a question about Philosophy but about the 'friendliness' of the site.
There are biases on this site; as many other sites will have; for example, I find myself frustrated by the inordinate attention that questions around mathematics enjoy, whereas there are many more important topics to discuss or subjects to raise; also its important to articulate your questions well - so that its easily understood by a wide and diverse audience; or if it is directed towards a specialist audience to use specialist jargon correctly.
I recall the Physicist Feynman when he was studying Physics in advance of his tutors developing a specialised language of his own - it took him a while to understand that standardised technical language is there for a reason - to facilitate communication in what is a demanding discipline; the same goes for philosophy; it too does have a technical vocabulary - and one should at least attempt to learn something of this language when one is asking questions in this subject.
But given the low visibility of philosophy in the Anglophone world (as opposed to the Francophone one) and due to the prominence of science as opposed to the humanities, particularly now which is an exceedingly technocratic age and on the web which by its very medium (McLuhans 'the medium is the message' comes to mind) tends to foreground the sciences and the physical & mathematical sciences in particular; and the well-publicised fight between them (the Science wars, which actually goes much further back if one is to judge by Snows two cultures and some of Simone Weils writings) this technical language isn't used much here (Philosophy according to Hawking is dead, for example).
Still it is possible (despite the obscurities of the Continental tradition) to ask questions in a clear way - one of the advantages of the anglo-analytical tradition (one might even call it a Socratic virtue) - without burdening oneself with a technical tradition.
If the question is unclear, then one is passing the burden onto someone else to make some sense of the question as well as answering it; this is different to a wide-ranging question which is difficult to answer as one doesn't know quite where to start.
Both of these difficulties can be gotten over, if one is prepared to ask and accept help in clarifying the question and/or focusing it.
Take a look at some of the questions on meta which address the issues you raise. Note that a new user is not necessarily an amateur philosopher. We have new users who are already familiar with philosophy who fit right in rather quickly. The issue here primarily is with people who are new to philosophy and unaware as to how to phrase their question or narrow it sufficiently for this Q&A site.
Helping amateur philosophers (who often have difficulty with the format):
Are amateur users that have little knowledge about philosophy not “ideal” for philosophy.SE?
New to Philosophy and learning how to ask good questions
Summer of Love (of Wisdom): How to drive friendliness?
Veteran users having problems question quality (particularly from amateur philosophers):
Subjective answers and questions stimulating subjectiveness (subjectivity and lack of focus)
Do questions have to be answerable? (unreasonably answerable)
Should we restrict this site to academic questions only...? (a preference for 'academic' questions)
