What questions are off topic here?

  • "I need advice on...", "What should I do?", or "Which job should I take?"
    • Questions looking for opinions on what to do but with no specific problem are suited for discussion boards (not a question/answer site) and generally will be closed on The Workplace as "not constructive." For information on how to write a good subjective question see here. Remember a real question has an answer, not just opinions or ideas.

Bug = 'Not Constructive' is no longer a close reason.

  • I personally like the "not constructive" close reason better. "primarily opinion-based" is too clunky sounding. – acolyte Jul 3 '13 at 13:51
  • @acolyte I agree, but "not constructive" wasn't clear to everyone (particularly people whose questions were closed as not constructive), and led to complaining and debates on metas. Having a simpler explanation (even if the wording isn't as nice) makes it a bit clearer why it's closed. – yoozer8 Jul 3 '13 at 17:50

I've updated it to use the primarily opinion-based close reason.

  • "Based" was misspelled as basd. – Jim G. Jul 2 '13 at 19:07
  • Thanks for catching that. Fixed. – yoozer8 Jul 2 '13 at 20:22
