I asked this question yesterday, which appears to have been voted closed as 'too broad':

How can I gauge market demand for my skills before going freelance?

Was this question closed appropriately? I don't agree that the question is 'too broad' - it seems to me to be scoped appropriately, in a way that is comparable with most other questions that are asked on the site.

If it is too broad, how should I change it to make it more appropriate?

If it isn't too broad, is it possible that it could be re-opened?


I made some small edits and voted to reopen as well. I removed a statement about your specific background to make it less about you and more about the process of determining your value. I also added a question to hopefully more explicitly call out what you are trying to determine. Feel free to edit the question further if you don't think I fully addressed what you're looking for.

Edit: The post is now open again.

Was this question closed appropriately?

I don't agree that the question should be closed. It already has an answer so it is clearly answerable.

The question in the title is definitely ok and answerable. The second question on the body perhaps could be a bit broad, but not something extreme (IMHO that is)

I casted a vote to Reopen, currently 2 votes are casted...

  • I don't think having an answer is relevant for a question being eligible for closing due to <category> - especially if the category is too broad or primarily opinion-based. – Stian Yttervik Oct 5 '18 at 6:38
  • @StianYttervik when people vote as too broad, and there is an answer, it is then clearly not so broad after all, and perhaps just something the voter didn't grasp completely. – DarkCygnus Oct 5 '18 at 15:43
