Today, I failed the following review audit in the "Close Votes" queue:


From the question:

I'm building a project on phonegap using JQuery mobile.

What is the best architecture to build it, something like MVC but without Server side, I want to use local storage inside the mobile.

I would appreciate providing me with architecture and simple sample code that works on that.

If the OP asked "how can I use local storage with PhoneGap and jQuery", that would IMO be a valid question.
But the OP is specifically asking "what is the best architecture". He then goes on to ask for an actual code sample. Together, I feel this means the question should be closed, either as "too broad" or "primarily opinion-based".

Was I being too harsh, to want to close this question?
Or is this a bad review audit?

    It is a terrible review audit. I've voted to close that question. – Martijn Pieters Jul 24 '13 at 10:24

    Same problem as this guy. I think Shog is onto something: 5 votes is far too low a bar for Stack Overflow. There are lots of terrible questions that inexplicably get 3-5 votes. And of course, no matter what score we pick, people might still fail the audit. – Cody Gray Jul 24 '13 at 10:27
  • (Totally as an aside: why the explicit line breaks in some of the paragraphs? I'm tempted to edit them out.) – Arjan Jul 24 '13 at 10:34
  • +1 Agree with you :) voted to close also – user210003 Jul 24 '13 at 10:40

  • @Arjan Matter of taste... I for one like short, separated paragraphs. – S.L. Barth - Reinstate Monica Jul 24 '13 at 11:31
  • Thanks all, glad to see this question is now On Hold. – S.L. Barth - Reinstate Monica Jul 24 '13 at 11:32

    Just for your information: if you think the line breaks separates sections of text, then note that they cannot always be seen. Also, a line break by itself does not start a new paragraph? – Arjan Jul 24 '13 at 11:38
