I posted a question today on meta. Got closed in an hour! Yes that was annoying and I don't understand the reason. If you read the comments, you get the impression the big issue is that the question or at least the title wasn't formatted as a question. One of the "closers" mentioned that they closed it because it wasn't a question. The only answer (by Lance as of now) liked one of my points. The whole activity doesn't convey my question was pointless
Then you look at the close reason and it's "Noise or Pointless" and not "Not a real question, which is the gist of the comments. I hope some users are not choosing one when they meant the other.
How does the closing work? Do all 5 closers have to choose the same reason or is it by majority? I am wondering if they chose the "Pointless" just because they couldn't find a clear question. I don't think then this is fair to the question poster. I also want to add the fact I made an edit and changed it into a question but it seems that was too late; which brings me to the next question. Isn't there a time period which needs to pass first before an actual close? The question seems to have to have closed too fast. (You can answer this question with your main answer.)
