Our top dev doesn't want new challenges

This question was closed as off-topic with the reasoning "Questions require a goal that we can address..."

Yet it had 12 good answers! Clearly at least 12 people were able to find a goal that they were capable of addressing.

I don't understand how someone could read it and not find a goal.

I voted to reopen it. I ask that others do, too.

  • I think this question is not "(DONE)" until the people that closed it give an answer on why it was closed? It was a pretty good and original question about something that does happen in many workplaces. So, why was it posted, closed and reopened all in 48 hours?

  • @teego1967 - people who voted to close already selected a reason for closing. "Questions require a goal that we can address...". I wouldn't expect anything more than that. Jul 9, 2020 at 10:25
  • I think your initial impulse to question the closing still stands. Selecting an option from a radio-button doesn't constitute an explanation.

As much as I wish it had more focus and less poetry, i vote to re-open

I wish someone (OP?) would add a summary header, perhaps something like:

one of the devs is busy up to the brim, don't want extra responsibility. How to manage the situation?
