I closed a question as off-topic, and the closure message is the following one:

Questions on Drupal Answers are expected to relate to drupal within the scope defined in the FAQ. Consider editing the question or leaving comments for improvement if you believe the question can be reworded to fit within the scope. Read more about closed questions here.

The first link takes to the Help center. IMO, it should take to What topics can I ask about here? which is the page that shows the list of allowed topics, once visible in the top of the FAQ page.

The second link should also be updated to point at the page that explains what closed questions are.

    That's because the link is still http://drupal.stackexchange.com/faq - i.e. the old one. The second link is also the old one - http://drupal.stackexchange.com/faq#close and needs updating as well. Therefore this is actually a bug. – ChrisF Jun 7 '13 at 13:46
  • The same is true of the moderator message templates. I need to report that as a separate bug. – ChrisF Jun 7 '13 at 13:47
  • The second link is already redirected to http://drupal.stackexchange.com/helpcenter/closed-questions. At least that is what happens to me on Drupal Answers; I think every user is redirected there too. Clearly, instead of using the old link and then redirecting users to the new link, it would be better to use the new link. – kiamlaluno Jun 7 '13 at 13:55
  • Ah. I just looked at the link rather than actually following it :) – ChrisF Jun 7 '13 at 13:57
