comment Coffee: good or bad for work?
Closed as "not constructive" because it seeks research on value judgments rather than specific conclusions or observable phenomena. The question could, of course, be re-opened if you rewrote it to better fit the Q&A format. To find the "right" approach to getting the info you need through our format, try to avoid generalities and get to the heart of the matter. Are you interested in documented effects on wakefulness, attentiveness, or some other measurable quality? What action do you want to take based on the info you get?

Welcome to Productivity.SE. One-liners aren't really helpful in our format. If you think something is worth using, please write about it, don't just paste links at people. The idea here is to provide answers, not just the same list a search engine would provide.

comment What paper stock should I use to print my planner pages?
@Tom Sadly, fountain pen friendliness is not a trait that manufacturers normally advertise.

comment What are alternatives to XMarks for bookmark synchonization?
"Is there something better than XMarks" will only yield a big list of XMarks competitors. If the question provided specific goals/differences so answerers could nail down a "best" alternative to offer you, it wouldn't be a "big list" question, and we'd only be left with the question of whether these software recommendation questions are on-topic (which to my knowledge hasn't been fully hashed out one way or the other yet).

comment How do you get the most out of services like Springpad?
As written, your question is too vague to be answerable. If you added information about the service (for those familiar with similar ones but not that one), about the specific things you want to improve or accomplish by adding this to your workflow, and about your constraints, it might have enough context to stick around.

@brian: Community Wiki is not intended to be a catch-all for bad questions. Either it's a good question or it's not.

comment What can I do to fight procrastination?
This is far too vague to be answerable. Please ask concretely answerable questions. How to Ask and How To Ask In Private Beta might be helpful to you.
