My question is not the same as http://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/39658/priority-of-close-votesPriority of Close Votes. I'm not asking about automated system behavior.


Consider the following hypothetical questions being posted on, e.g., Stack Overflow:

  1. Which car over there best matches my eyes? (broad, local, nonconstructive, off topic)
  2. Help my facebook is broken it wast yesterday? (broad, off topic, local)
  3. How can I make my programmers stop putting gum in my hair? (local, nonconstructive)

When I inevitably go to close such questions, I'm not sure what reason to select: is it more off topic than overly broad? Is it more localized than not constructive?

Perhaps off topic gets priority because the OP could fix localized and broad issues, but not the topic? On the other hand, we don't want to migrate bad questionswe don't want to migrate bad questions.

When a question qualifies for multiple reasons to close, which reasons should get priority? In what order should priority be distributed?
