There are multiple reasons why a question gets closed as "Not a real question". I'd like the system to automatically post a link to the SO FAQ as a comment to the question when the first Not a Real Question vote is cast
Similar to when the system posts a link to questions being marked for closure due to "Exact Duplicate"
I think this would be very helpful to those that are new to the site. And yes, I know a link to the FAQ is at the bottom of every page. Although, interestingly, even though I've been a member here since it was first in Beta I'm pretty sure I never even looked at those links until recently... My mind keeps filtering them out as "advertising" ;)
A couple of Wording possibilities:
- Please review the FAQ for hints on how to get great answers.
- Please review the FAQ for the best way to ask questions.
