This question already has an answer here:
Technically, a question such as
is not off topic according to the FAQ:
- it is a specific programming question
- it is answerable
However that question (now deleted), although not ideal, got closed as "Not a real question" within 5 minutes and deleted within 8 minutes? It IS a real question!
This post seems to confirm that although there would be good reasons to downvote, there are no proper reasons to close (unless it's a duplicate - but let's assume it isn't).
On the other hand, the accepted answer on this other post basically says: not enough research <=> not a real question.
- Is there an official policy as to how we should handle "give me the code" questions?
- Could it be made clearer in the FAQ? (e.g.: give me the code questions are not welcome / give me the code questions, although not welcome, are tolerated / give me the code questions are welcome)
