Recently two of my questions were closed as off-topic (one on Stack Overflow and the other on Programmers SE) and I was referred to the FAQ. The problem is, both questions were similar in nature to questions asked with the same tag (on SO, the tag was career). So my question is: what should be done in this case?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
Take heed to the FAQ.
Questions asked and tagged a long time ago, especially months back, haven't all caught up to being closed as off-topic or deleted outright if/when the FAQ is updated to better articulate the focus and topic of the website.
Just because it was asked before, continues to live by a hair's halitosis and doesn't jive with the FAQ as it is now, doesn't mean a question posted today will come through as turkey clean.
