Most Stack Exchange site get their share of poll and list (shopping or otherwise) questions. (“What are all the fidgets that warble mildly?” “Where can I find tutorials about stambolgification?“ “Which zonkificatorizifier do you use?” “Where can I buy a green guzzillinner 3001?”) Most Stack Exchange sites reject them because they don't work in the Stack Exchange format: they invite collections of items arranged any old how, as opposed to answers that cover the subject.
In the old days, we could use not a real
close reason question. Then there was not constructive, which, as misunderstood as it was (and good riddance to it on that account), had the advantage that it included “will likely solicit (…) polling” in its explanation.
Now there is too broad (“too many possible answers”) and also primarily opinion-based. But the two do not cover the whole gamut of polling questions. Too many possible answers puts the burden on proof on the closer (“What do you mean there are too many tutorials on doing password verification in Java script? Let people answer, and if there are indeed dozens of answers then you can come back and close it!”). There's even the yes/no variant (“I just want to know if one exists, as soon as I have one answer the question is fully answered, it can't possibly be too broad”). Primarily opinion-based doesn't apply to list questions which do not ask to express subjective preference (“I'm not asking what your favorite interpretative dance about time-traveling robots is, I just want a complete list of them/to know if one exists.” “Just make it community wiki.”)
What close reason can we use for requests for links or other items when there is no subjectivity in the inclusion criteria?
A per-site close reason isn't a solution — this is an issue on all sites across all topics.
