Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

My question is about flags...
Many times the users asks question with no code, without effort and their work behind his question. We have to ask/comment him "Show your effort" , "What are doing so far " and so on.. So Is there any kind of flag for this ? or If it is not It should be added.

Since Shog's post I got a kind of restrained/unsettle with flagging these questions. – bummi Dec 26 '13 at 13:57
