If a question is to be down voted or to be closed, does it make sense to require moderators to (perhaps walked through a process checklist):
- migrate the question to an appropriate group OR
- ask clarifying questions OR
- provide constructive & specific advice for shaping questions OR
- modify the question so as to improve the quality / viability?
We all have our biases and it seems a little too easy to shutdown questions: I have seen questions (from others) that were interesting that should not have been shut down. I realize that some questions are so ill-posed & beyond salvage, at the same time there are others questions that are actually well-posed and closed.
I would like to see greater incentives for moderators to guide, if not modify questions to become useful to the community.
UPDATE: Example of a question that I believe is within scope.
