I think that using diary entries for questions can be very useful and appropriate.

For example https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/Mateusz%20Konieczny/diary/35437 <https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/Mateusz%20Konieczny/diary/35437>
that was basically a question "is this a good progress toward improving map style, 
or is there something that should be done differently?"

It resulted in a very useful feedback, especially  
"Ok - will try to explain briefly on the problem of too strong colors. (...)" but also
other comments.

There only other place where I could reasonably publish this was a Github repository,
where it would reach different and smaller group of people - even with announcement
on mailing lists.
