I don't think a new user can vote on a question or an answer. The site says I need 15 reputation...

This is an excellent initiative: congratulations and thank you for setting it up!

I guess this site will be all the more useful as there are more contributers... So I guess that good questions for the administrator(s) of this site are:

  • Do you have a plan for advertising this site/attracting new Users?
  • How can the Users help?

The StackExchange websites have been designed for making questions related to programming and technical issues.

For example, for this reason, if you try to write a question which starts with 'What is your favorite experience...' you get a disclaimer saying that 'your question seems to be probably subjective and it is likely to be closed'.

However, I think that it is very useful to make subjective and opinion-based questions on bioinformatics, as there are few places to do so... So, what is your policy? Will you accept subjective questions?
