Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This is not a question, it is a comment.

This question was closed as non-constructive. But the three questions within it all have exact, non-debatable, non-subjective answers. They were:

  • what is the most awarded badge? There can be only one answer here, no debate.
  • what is the second most awarded badge? Again, only one answer.
  • where can I see the statistics? Ok, maybe there is more than one place to view them, but certainly the options won't elicit debate or chatty long winded discussion.

I just felt I had to share this.

Stack Exchange sites are Q&A sites, not C&A or C&C sites. – Jack Maney Sep 24 '12 at 10:08
@Jack Maney: The user asked valid questions, with non-subjective answers. I really don't understand how anyone considers it non-constructive. – John Fitzpatrick Sep 24 '12 at 10:09
I felt question was Too localized, but question was closed as not constructive by the other users. – Lucifer Sep 24 '12 at 10:09
@JohnFitzpatrick - Irrelevant. Questions are for asking questions. Comments are for comments. There is a difference. – Jack Maney Sep 24 '12 at 10:10
@Jack Maney: Oh, your referring to my post. Yes, I purposely broke the rules and expect to pay the downvote price, and an eventual closing. But I felt I had to say something. – John Fitzpatrick Sep 24 '12 at 10:15
@JohnFitzpatrick - Moderator flags exist for a reason. Use the right tool for the right job. – Jack Maney Sep 24 '12 at 10:15
@Jack Maney: Agreed. Was not aware of the option. Won't happen again. – John Fitzpatrick Sep 24 '12 at 10:17
btw the question in question was re-opened. – Yannis Sep 24 '12 at 11:17

This is not a question, it is a comment.


I just felt I had to share this.

Please don't do that, by posting a question you are pushing other, perhaps more useful questions out of the way.

If you feel the question was closed incorrectly, vote to re-open. If you don't yet have the privilege to vote to re-open, flag it for moderation attention and ask for it to be re-opened. Lastly, if you just want to comment, then comment.

Simple as that.

Agreed. I was not aware of the other options, and I really felt compelled to say something. Sorry. – John Fitzpatrick Sep 24 '12 at 10:10
@JohnFitzpatrick No worries, for the record I agree that the question shouldn't have been closed and have already voted to re-open it. – Yannis Sep 24 '12 at 10:11
