The recent question on the difference between the Prose Edda and Poetic Edda raises an interesting issue.
While this question was predominantly downvoted, and some felt the asker was lazy, let me posit this: What if the asker were, say, a very bright middle-schooler? I suspect the response might have been different. But the same could be said of an underclassman at University. Although I'm now a the point where I've probably forgotten more than I know, when I was an underclassman, you could have written volumes about what I didn't understand about mythology.
Anyone can get the facts on questions like this from Wikipedia, so what distinguishes the Stack mythology forum? Stack answers certainly do well in the search rankings, so shouldn't part of our mission be building a valuable mythological resource with unique qualities?
From that perspective, I'd look at the Edda question as an opportunity, not an imposition. Especially in light of how few questions we get compared to the more popular Stack forums.
