The question Can the self-service transfer kiosks at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport be used even if one hasn't missed a flight or lost one's boarding pass? was closed because "needs details or clarity". Why? What's unclear or need more details? The only comment by a close-voter was ~go check out the kiosks by yourself.
Why was this question on understanding what services self-service transfer kiosks at Amsterdam Schiphol provide closed as unclear?
2I’m voting to close this question because it is simply sealioning and not in search of a real answer to the question it purports to ask.– mlcJan 21 at 6:07
Doesn't seem like a practical, real question you face, but a speculative/fictional scenario like some of your other questions.
Doesn't seem like you have done any research (holding on a phone but not speaking to someone doesn't count).
And you have a number of comments already there describing issues that folks have with the question.
We may not have an exact boilerplate close reason for this type of thing, but I agreed with the other close voters that this was suitable enough.
1) "Doesn't seem like a practical, real question you face, but a speculative/fictional scenario" It's a question about some service provided at the airport, why do you think it is a speculative/fictional scenario? 2) "Doesn't seem like you have done any research (holding on a phone but not speaking to someone doesn't count)." is that a reason to close a question?

3Yeah, it kind of is. We have been round this argument numerous times with you - and remember, to add value here, questions and answers need to be useful to future visitors. That should steer how you approach asking here.– Rory Alsop ModJan 18 at 17:07
It's a question about some service provided at the airport, so it is clearly of value to future visitors. Most questions here don't show any research and I don't recall I discussed research requirements on meta (I searched for "research" amongst my questions and the answers they receive, didn't see any results). travel.meta.stackexchange.com/q/3985/1810 indicates there's no consensus on the need for research beyond closing questions that can be found easily with a Google search, and such questions are almost always left open in practice Jan 19 at 14:46
