(TL;DR: see title.)
Where are all the tactics questions?
Teichmann is often quoted as saying:
(It seems unsure if this quote is actually his, but that's an aside.)
I'm thinking about questions along the lines Here's a position, how to win material? (or What is the best move?). There's a practical infinitude of such questions.
I conjecture that this site is facing a shortage of questions (see We need more questions...) primarily because there's not many tactics questions (41 questions tagged tactics, of which just this one actually asks about a specific position; although, there's also this endgame question which might arguably be described as tactical).
I suspect the main reason there are not many tactics questions is because of chess engines.
Let me Fritz that for you... (or not?)
It seems difficult to ask tactics questions here, since let me Fritz that for you seems to answer all tactics questions. But does it really?
I'm a user of chesstempo.com (a chess tactics training site where individual tactics problems have their own page, and users can add comments). I find the comments and stats on their tactics puzzles informative. They give human-usable information that engine-only analysis would not reveal. E.g.
Overlooked candidate move. I may have ultimately needed to reject these moves in a particular position, but if the position were slightly different they might work.
Overlooked opponent defense. The defense may not work with correct play, but this needs to be calculated before committing to a given line.
The right move, the wrong reason. It's a winning move, but how I expect to win doesn't work (there's another win I'm oblivious to).
Other concerns with engines:
Engine analysis could be dependent on a critical move sequence (or tablebases) that would be incalculable by humans.
Engine analysis leads to laziness when it comes to calculation.
How to ask tactics questions?
Essentially, what I want to ask is: how can we ask tactics questions on this site, without attracting answers like let me Fritz that for you? Instead...
