I came across a question today that instead of having [closed], it had [on hold]. What is this new change, and what does it affect?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    This is likely to be a question that's asked many times when the new functionality is rolled out on other sites. While it's completely answered at the linked question, "What does 'on hold' mean?" is much more findable and believable as a potential search than "Closing the loop" for this subject. In short, although Cody might have been expected to look around a little, this question will be useful, and I think that downvotes are unwarranted. It wouldn't be the first time a Meta post had been created just to be make information more searchable, either. – Josh Caswell Jun 12 '13 at 20:24
  • @JoshCaswell Good point. I updated the title on the other question to be a bit more clear. – Adam Lear Jun 12 '13 at 20:38
