Maybe I'm missing something, but there seems to be a clear gap in the FAQ for Ask Patents.
Things we allow:
- Prior art requests
- Patent law or patent approval process
- Questions about a specific patent claims or ideas
Things we don't allow
- Not productive
- Not patents
- Legal advice...
But the gap I'm seeing is asking for help about patents. Similar to Where can I view the figures from a patent? Perhaps the better question is "How do I find the images in a patent?" I think this kind of thing should be in scope. The answer isn't really even all that helpful, "go look on patentscope", isn't actually helpful, but maybe there's a button for patentscope that I can't see.
