The powers that be have decided to play with the way closures now work.
The [On Hold] period for 5 days before becoming [Closed].
Too Localized has been dumped in favour of three 'more specific' closure reasons.
"Each site will have a list of its own specific pre-selected “Off-Topic” reasons"
I would like to draw the communities attention to point 3. Supposedly the mods will be able to create tailored off-topic closure reasons to the community.
From what I can gather of the way it works, presumably we would prefer to keep a short list of reasons, 2-3, with friendly, well designed explanations with easy to understand titles.
Mods can then choose which to implement at their discretion.
So taking this into consideration, any suggestions for closure reasons, with good text, should be supplied in an individual answer (and be wiki'd to allow everyone to contribute), to allow voting on to help us show the mods which we think would be best implemented.
For reference, here is the current off-topic list in the help center:
- "I need advice on...", "What should I do?", or "Which job should I take?"
- "Is it legal..."
- "Please review my resume/CV"
- "How do I learn to be a..." / "How do I perform the job of a ..."
- "What salary/hourly rate should I look for? How much should I charge for X?"
Here are the current default close reasons for all sites (we cannot remove these, only create a list of specific off-topic items, so any that we add should minimize overlap or confusion with the other standard options):
