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

I'm participating in the RPG stack exchange community. I've noticed that unlike other sites, there are zero very few closed questions. Obviously it's necessary to allow more subjectiveness on a site that discusses role playing games, but I think it very odd, that the community hasn't found anymany questions it agrees are out of line.

Is a lack of closed questions a bad sign, or am I being uptight? (go ahead and say it Welbog)

There are no closed questions on RPG? [What makes a game an “Indie” RPG? ](…) and Proven starting level intra-party Combo's (synergistic tactics) are closed... we have some but there's only 5ish. – Richard JP Le Guen Aug 31 '10 at 16:02
@Richard Apparently I was searching incorrectly before? – C. Ross Aug 31 '10 at 16:30
@C. Ross - I see... but you have an interesting point; we seem to have very, very few closed. – Richard JP Le Guen Aug 31 '10 at 17:12
It's funny to read this when we already have people whining on cooking.SE about too many closed questions. No matter what you do, you can't win. le sigh – Aarobot Aug 31 '10 at 18:39
@Aarobot Same on gaming. Still from what we've seen on the trilogy, many close is not a bad thing. We don't know the effect of two few close votes. – C. Ross Aug 31 '10 at 22:48

A lack of closed questions by itself isn't a bad sign. It's only bad if there are questions that should be closed but aren't. I'm not sure what the thresholds are for voting to close on new sites, but it's possible that there aren't enough people with enough rep to vote to close. If there are specific questions that need attention, they should be flagged for moderator (DM?) attention, or brought up on the RPG meta site for discussion.

During the private beta, anyone can vote to close. During the public beta, anyone with at least 500 reputation can vote to close - this actually precedes both split vote count and editing abilities. – Grace Note Aug 31 '10 at 15:39
Ah, thanks @Grace. It looks like that might be it. It seems that only 11 people currently have the vote-to-close right on RPG. – Bill the Lizard Aug 31 '10 at 15:41
