I agree with you on the first post. It seems to me to be way too broad as well since it is someone just asking for hints on how to develop something. I think it is an interesting question, but it is not a fit for SO.
I don't necessarily agree with you on #2. Yes it is about software, but it is about Eclipse, so I believe it fits under the this provision in the on-topic question list.
- software tools commonly used by programmers
Now, I do not think this is a well asked question by any stretch as it is just saying "I opened Eclipse and couldn't do anything" and a screenshot to prove the menus are gray, but I don't think it is as clearly off topic as you say.
The criteria for selecting reopen audit questions as defined by Shog are
- Recently asked
- Score between 5 and 15 (inclusive)
- Never locked, migrated, or deleted
- No close votes or downvotes, ever
- (On Stack Overflow) at least 100 views
So by simply using your own privileges, you have the power to remove what you perceive a bad audit question from the queue by casting a downvote or a close vote.
Since you asked this question, the first post has picked up 2 close votes, so it will no longer be used as an audit question. The 2nd post
still meets the criteria as it has not picked up and downvotes or close votes has picked up a downvote, so it will no longer be used as a reopen audit either.
