What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 129 Stack Exchange communities.

There are 5 close reasons in MSO:

  • exact duplicate,
  • off-topic
  • subjective and argumentative
  • too localized
  • noise or pointless

but the noise or pointless reason does not exist on meta SE 2.0 sites, and "not a real question" is still there:

  • exact duplicate,
  • off-topic
  • subjective and argumentative
  • not a real question
  • too localized

Should the close reasons on meta SE 2.0 sites align with those of MSO?

In the name of consolidation and simplifying the existing standard close reasons, we're changing "subjective and argumentative" to

not constructive

As it currently stands, this question is not a good fit for our Q&A format. We expect answers to be supported by facts, references, or expertise, but this question will likely solicit debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion.

The meta "noise or pointless" will be decommissioned and folded into this one. That is, if something was closed as NoP it will (soon) be retroactively closed as "not constructive".
