MOD POST: A question for the community

I can't make this into a poll, because I don't have a paid account (and don't want one). If you have a strong opinion either way, please comment.

Lately, there has been an increase in submitted questions that don't have anything to do with fiction, but are for other creative endeavors -- illustration, sewing period costume, and so on. I think that I need to make a decision regarding these types of posts, but I'm not sure what, and so I'm asking you. Here are the options:

1. We can keep this a writing-only community, as it currently is, and I could just enforce the writing-only part more strictly by rejecting posts that say that they're for some other kind of project.

2. We can expand the community' to include questions related to all sorts of creativity, with the caveat that only questions about accuracy are allowed -- not questions about technique. In other words, asking what kind of fabric a medieval nun's habit would be made of would be allowed, but asking for patterns or advice on how to make one on a sewing machine would not.

3. We can change nothing, and I can continue to capriciously approve or reject queued posts based on whether or not I think they're interesting and fit with the community.
