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

Now that we have that ugly huge menu with explanations we may as well put it to good use.

This question is server or system administration related, and is a better fit for Server Fault.

Note that this would only be for the descriptions of the menu; the old ones should still be used in the "question closed [...]" bottom notification.

I think it's fine the way it is. One thing I've noticed over and over again is that people usually don't take the time to read. Having a wall of text certainly doesn't make it any better. Also, the close popup is already huge, I don't want to turn my monitor to portrait mode just to be able to read all the close reasons.

KISS; always keep this in mind. We don't need to copy-paste the FAQ for each site into that close popup. If you don't know what the other sites do, don't vote to migrate to them.
