New changes to the close reasons are all but imminent. Long story short, the following close reasons are going away:
- not a real question
- not constructive
- too localized
The replacement reasons will be:
- unclear what you’re asking — Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking.
- too broad — There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.
- primarily opinion-based — Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.
In addition, off-topic will now have sub-reasons to close. Each SE site will have three custom off-topic reasons, and it's best that we discuss these in advance in anticipation of the changes. See also the post on MSO for the changes from moderator perspective, but there are details that concern ordinary users too.
I think we can keep too localized in some form, it is a veritable close reason for Travel SE. Other suggestions? You can also include a summary of what the text of the reason could be. Keep it short and concise, if possible. Keep it to one close reason for post, so that they can be voted and commented on separately. Exact wording can be worked out later when we decide on which ones to use.
Edit: We can add all reasons that make sense for us, however only three of them will be available to choose from at any given time.
