Question pretty much says it all - I was sure there used to be a close reason of 'not about Apple hardware or software'

Am I going completely barmy, or did it vanish in the recent rejig, same time as 'Basic Support' was added to the list?

We can only have 4 close reason choices and we opted to drop that one in favour the new customer support reason. You can still use "Other..." I believe and enter the text there.

  • ah - didn't know there were only 4 possibles. Makes sense,... & yes, I just did type one in 'other' which was what prompted me to ask. Thanks. – Tetsujin Jun 27 '15 at 16:56

    Actually - if we had 5 reasons, the 5th ought to be "If you didn't have backup, tough!" – Tetsujin Jun 27 '15 at 19:43

    @Tetsujin If you wish to use the exact original text of the prior close reason in the custom field, it was Questions about **non-Apple computing hardware and software** are off-topic here, but can be asked on [Super User](http://superuser.com/about). This custom close reason was deactivated on 2014-01-12. – grg Jun 27 '15 at 20:50
  • Stack Overflow has 5 + belongs on another site + Other – mmmmmm Jul 9 '15 at 13:10
  • Where is the meta question/discussion on the new reason? – mmmmmm Jul 9 '15 at 13:12
  • There was no meta discussion IIRC. It was a moderator-led decision. – Ian C. Jul 9 '15 at 17:10
  • @IanC.We only have 3 close reasons + Other - Other sites e.g. SuperUser have 4 + Other.. Did someone miscount or has the list changed? – mmmmmm Apr 11 '16 at 11:09

Also. Too broad or unclear often apply when someone asks what seems to be a PC or android question. Once you close it as unclear, it can quickly be deleted or edited if there is some relation to Apple products.
