There is some discussion about adding custom close reason for questions that are asking for general advice or are just rants. To me these are not neccessarily off topic, as they are usually about navigating the work place but just questions that are not asked appropriately.
Off topic questions are questions that are about topics that are not about navigating the workplace or are related but have been designated as out of bounds to the workplace. For instance questions asking for Salary ranges, or which job to accept are related but have been declared off topic. No matter how the question is worded the question is off-topic.
We already have one exception and that is questions asking for legal advice. Most questions in this realm can be saved by instead of asking if they are OK or at risk, by asking how they can achieve their goal properly. But we have said that if you ask for legal advice that is a no-no mostly because of the potential risk it puts on SE and this site, as well as the fact that legal answers are rarely definite and that with out a detailed analysis it is rarely possible to give decent advice based off of the limited details provided here.
So my question is should we be adding other off topic reasons that can usually be edited to be on topic with out changing the core of the question?
For instance if a questions says:
My boss hates me what should I do?
Should it be ok to close this as off topic then edit it to say:
My boss hates me, How can I find out why so I can address the issue?
(Question overly simpified I know) The question here is still basically the same just clarified what the goal is. The topic is still the same but based on the question asked it is on topic.
