comment How do authors gain strong familiarity with archaic and extremely rare words?
I agree that the only way to expand your vocabulary is by reading lots of words. But perhaps reading annotated versions of very old books might be a better, more educational way to do this?

comment Find Information For Describing A Nuclear Power Plant
@ChrisOkyen - It would make the existing answer irrelevant if you did. I think the question already focuses on how to find information rather than simply asking questions, so it's fine. (My earlier comment was meant to apply towards those who would answer the question.)

comment How to number the equations in an academic paper?
Are you using a particular style guide (APA, MLA, etc.)?

comment Find Information For Describing A Nuclear Power Plant
The Writers community is currently divided on whether questions like this are on-topic. This thread has the details. I would recommend that answers that are more about identifying appropriate resources and less about the details of nuclear power plants would be both more on-topic as well as useful to future visitors.

comment What language style should I use for a tech blog?
@JohnSmithers - Questions about style are on-topic here, but I agree that this question is too general to get any useful answers other than opinions. More information about the target audience would help focus this question.

comment How many different words are in the average novel?
@spiceyokooko - I believe that J.R.'s comment may be asking you to cite those numbers. (I'd also be curious to know where you got them, and what years those numbers represent, since the average novel seems to have gotten longer in the last decade or so.)

comment What genre appeals to the widest audience?
Micaela, welcome to Writers.SE. I'd like to say that I regret the torrent of downvotes on your first question; I suspect that people are reacting to the fact that writing a book based on this kind of genre cherry-picking would likely produce an utterly vapid story. The question itself is a good one; thanks for asking it. It's produced some excellent answers, which is what these sites are all about. Again, welcome, and please keep asking questions!

comment What genre appeals to the widest audience?
@Aerovistae - I respectfully disagree. The question certainly does betray a lack of understanding of what genre is in the first place; this answer attempts to correct that. Just because a question is very basic doesn't mean it deserves our scorn.
