comment What basic knowledge and skills are required to become a Vipassana teacher?
Bhante, perhaps the answer would benefit from sources on the 16 stages of knowledge - accesstoinsight.org/lib/authors/mahasi/progress.html and the Dhamma exams? _/\_

comment What are the three marks of existence?
Although it is a novice question, it still deserves an answer that can be referred to (it probably won't be the first time this comes up). Such questions can also be asked of 'experts' - even a novice to one can be an expert to another. Suggesting for the community wiki, would be glad to see elaborate 'expert' responses to questions like this. :-)

comment Asking fundamental "beginner" questions
Well put. Not sure that others see Buddhist.SE as the place to get answers to questions requiring expert answers, though, many appear to ask questions, wondering what it is (and how it compares to 'their' religion). Can we perhaps add some community wiki entries to describe the basics?

comment Suggestion for the coming "close storm"
In addition to the "close storm" it appears to be "getting windy" in terms of low quality questions (predominantly Christian, as far as I've seen) like this one buddhism.stackexchange.com/questions/1864/… - it's a fine balance to keep a good quality SE that people find useful.

comment Making claims of attainments
@MatthewMartin right, isn't there an Enlightened badge? Just get that, and we win the game.

comment Making claims of attainments
the reason to post this is actually that most Buddhism.SE users are not Buddhists. So in a sense a newcomer would evaluate an answer based on claims on their profile. However, like you mention, let's not make a problem of it.

comment How does Buddhism describe God?
@yuttadhammo Perhaps all these (curious) questions should just be endured as they are, answering the unique God questions and closing duplicates?
