Why was Modify CKEditor dialog labels closed as "not a real question"?

The question seems valid to me. It includes a labelled image showing that the individual was asking for so it's fairly clear. Perhaps there's something about ckeditor that I don't know that warrants closing of the question as I see that it also has two down votes?

Is the question more than "Give me a library"? –  random Jul 26 '12 at 2:43
I'm only slightly familiar with ckeditor, but I took the question as "how do I do this?" as in the label in the image. –  nmc Jul 26 '12 at 3:01
I took the question as "can you google for the answer for me" which might have been changed with a more properly worded question or more details showing evdence of self research. –  Mark Schultheiss Jul 26 '12 at 18:17

Why I would consider this a candidate for "Not a Real Question":

  • The question is incomplete; it contains no code that can be inspected, or inferred from context.
  • There is no evidence that the OP made an attempt to solve their problem via research (looking through jQuery's API, Google, etc).
  • The question is (likely) not helpful to others; it is very limited in scope to the OP's problem in this specific point in time.

Wow... I'm sorry I asked the question. But thank you for taking the time to answer. It seems there's some consensus in the community about the OP lack of effort. Not sure I agree with the last point though. As someone who has used ckeditor, while I've found no need for this question (yet), I could see a possible use for it. –  nmc Jul 26 '12 at 19:10
