Custom close reasons have been live for a while now. We currently have 2 of the (3) given in use but a recent surge in questions being closed has prompted the need for a few more that are more tailored to address specific questions/close reasons instead of writing up why it is off-topic everytime.
Here are some guidelines to work with:
- Keep it simple - so new users reading these will understand, especially if they are not familiar with StackExhange.
- Give solid reasoning - try to have something that's not too open-ended as to open things up to a debate or retort.
- Keep it brief - there's no need to write a book about it so lets aim for under 500 characters, including links and other Markdown tags.
- Give your reasoning behind each reason - it helps to reference previous meta posts so we don't confuse users that haven't gotten the chance (or time) to peruse our meta site.
We are currently looking for close reasons pertaining to:
Not even remotely about Blender
This question does not appear to be about Blender within the scope defined in the help center.
This question is too localized in its current form and is unlikely to be applicable outside of a very narrow context. Consider broadening the scope of this question in order to make it more useful for future users of the site.
This question appears to be off-topic because it is a bug report and not an actual question. These should be reported to Blender's tracker instead.
- Hardware questions
Unrelated programming questions (C/C++) etc
See What questions should be definitely off-topic? for more ideas on what is off-topic here.
