We recently changed the "advice on what to do" close reason to "advice on a specific choice". However, I noticed that the off-topic definitions in the Help Center were not updated to match the new wording. Can this be changed? I also think that the "focusing on ranting" could be updated to match the current "questions require a goal".

Are there any other places these definitions show up that we might have missed?

  • I see that the problem you mentioned still persists, any updates regarding this question?
