(REOPENED) Reopen "boss keeps changing his mind"?

(Done) Reopen: How can I address being paid less that my male colleagues with similar or lesser roles in my company?

Whether gender actually is an issue is irrelevant. The OP believes it is, and that will inform how she approaches the problem. We have plenty of questions about bad managers, problem coworkers, and ...

(Reopened) I think we should reopen the question about men wearing nail polish to work

I'd wish we'd be much more harsh on people posting overly broad, quora-like questions, hoping to receive hundred contradicting questions, and pick up one that amuses them at most as accepted. Stack ...

What do I need to do to get the 'poison a co-worker' question re-opened?

I think the biggest difficulty is related to two points. First, you are suggesting to actively poison another teammate and then asking "what happens if I do this?" -- this is really not a good ...

How is the "stack ranking" question opinion-based?

The core question is, as stated: I am very curious to know from experienced leaders how they tackled the evil of stack-ranking and managed to keep employee morale from sinking like a stone? This ...

How do we save the question about an offensive remark by a teacher?

I don't think it can be edited to be a good question without fundamentally changing it. It's too disjointed and comes across as a one-sided rant justifying some underlying hidden reason for a ...

(Done) Why is any question about security clearance closed as "Legal Advice"?

This is exactly what I've been railing against. "I don't understand it, so it must be off topic". This might not surprise people, but I know about security clearances as well. Voted to reopen.

Why was this answer deleted on: What are best practices for employee surveys?

I'm not Lilienthal so I obviously don't know what they were thinking but I have to say I'm not surprised the answer was deleted. As written it simply isn't any more an answer to the question than ...

(Done) Req to reopen "Coworker wrote me into fictional book"

While I think it would benefit from a more explicitly stated end goal I have to agree it's on-topic and answerable in it's current form. I would have been hesitant to hammer it open unilaterally but ...

Reopen request for "Tell colleagues about booster shot"

I'm really not convinced this closure can really be classed as "trigger happy" - it wasn't just the mods taking unilateral action as at the time of closure it had already attracted two other ...

Reopen -- Employer wants me to learn new language/system - how can I refuse to do this?

I agree. I was one of the ones who voted to close. Enderland is right, I have voted to reopen. We need to separate the motivation/attitude/wisdom of the querent from the quality of the question. ...

What do I need to do to get the 'poison a co-worker' question re-opened?

In my view this is still a good close in spite of the edit. The fallout is going to be disciplinary, legal, or both. Disciplinary action is going to be company specific, none of us know the ...

That's fair. I edited the question to make that distinction explicit (and link to the other question) and reopened. Answerers should remember to address this specific property of the question (or ...

I think this is not related to the workplace. This is a technical question about their core business. They should be asking this question on a more technical site.

Please reopen a post about what's generally acceptable to ask superiors or read into the employee handbook

I think that with the edits this question is on-topic here. I don't think it's about company-specific policies. I think it should be answered in an IT-agnostic way; if a company has IT policies ...

How can I improve the question about improving an office environment and can it be re-opened?

It's too broad because it doesn't give any parameters. What a 10-person company with a capital budget of $5000 can do is very different from what, say, Facebook can do. Knowing something about the ...

However, this seems to me to be overly rigid, given the question has received 45+ up votes and the top-voted answer has received over 100. First, I think it is important to remember that the fact ...
