I wanted to post a main announcement here:
- Closing changes: on hold, unclear, too broad, opinion-based, off-topic reasons, bye-bye to Too Localized
These changes are going to be a very nice benefit to both new users and old users - especially once we all get a week or two to see how to best use the new close reasons:
- When your question is closed, if you edit it within 5 days - it's bumped to the reopen queue without anyone needing to cast the first vote. Additionally, the text will say [on hold] rather than [closed] to remind everyone that we expect most questions to be saved and re-opened if the problem identified can be fixed with a proper edit.
- The specific problems with a post are much more specific: duplicate, off-topic, unclear what you are asking, too broad, primarily opinion based
All this is a common change to all sites on Stack Exchange. What's specific to Ask Different is that we can come up with one or two custom "off-topic reasons" and I'd like to knock around any and all reasons we'd like to have listed for all users to pick when casting a close vote.
