Many of the current answers begin with "It depends on your field" / "There is no one answer". Indeed, each field is unique, although they share common grounds.
For questions that depend on the specific field, I would expect to see many answers, each for its own field, rather than having an answer that says "it varies" and that only gives a brief description of the common grounds.
For instance, for the question
Should I publish my recent result in a journal or a conference?
I would expect to see
- Anser A: "In CS, conferences are very important and you should publish there (and then submit the ful version to a journal"
- Answer B: "In our field, , there are no serious conferences, thus one should aim for journals..."

Do you agree with this paradigm? How do we lead the community to avoid "it depends on your field" kind of answers and replace them with "In field XXXX, the answer is.."?
