I'm not sure where to ask this since it is applicable to all sites, but I believe we need a way to migrate "on hold" to "closed". I'm encountering questions that are clearly not redeemable - usually because they are fundamentally about a subject that is off topic. I believe that these should be closed and not "on hold". However as things stand they can only be made "on hold".

The other case I have found is a question that is put "on hold" because it is vague, but is later found to be a duplicate. These should be closed and not "on hold".

How do we do this?

We don't need to do anything. From the StackExchange blog entry on the new changes made to the close vote system:

Questions not re-opened within five days will revert to displaying as “closed,” to serve as a clearer signpost going forward.
