This question already has an answer here:
The Not Constructive close description currently says:
This question is not a good fit to our Q&A format. We expect answers to generally involve facts, references, or specific expertise; this question will likely solicit opinion, debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion.
I see it mostly used on questions which do not meet the quality standards we want to see in SE questions, even if the question might actually be constructive.
Can we change the title to more accurately represent the close reason, so instead of seeing
closed as not constructive by ...
closed as not meeting site standards by ...
(Exact verbage up for discussion. Other suggestions include bad subjective or some variation of not a good fit for this site)
Not-constructive may make sense in some cases, but I see that close reason used more for posts that don't match the SE guidelines for how to ask a good question than anything else. Seeing a question closed as low-quality or as not a good fit for this specific site seems much more understandable then seeing what looks to be a constructive question closed as not-constructive.
Also, not sure if it matters, but I was thinking of this due to closed questions on smaller SE sites, not SO
To clarify, I am not referring to questions which are low quality because of the way they were written, but rather questions which are closed because they do not meet the SE question standard, such as How to Deal With Unreasonable Expectations? or How can I motivate myself to work on projects I don't believe in or care about? (both questions from Workplaces.SE)
