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

Until recently, when you selected "close" on a question, the menu of options that was presented looked a lot like the one being described here (if my memory serves me right).

Today I wanted to vote to close a question that lacked the "demonstrate minimal understanding, show code" criterion (#2 and #3 in above link). It seems that the options were changed.

When did they get changed, and why?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Often such questions are "too broad" or "unclear", those that aren't are now on topic. While I would have liked more community involvement before this decision was taken I can get behind that as long as "too broad" is enforced strictly – Richard Tingle Jan 15 '14 at 15:40
