In reviewing low quality posts, I cannot see a suitable option to close this.

It was closed as:

Closure reason

The available options are as follows.

Close Options 1

Doesn't belong here

Off topic options

    Full close privileges include an "other" option so we can type a custom off topic message. For flagging a default off topic option would probably be good Jul 27, 2013 at 0:55
  • @psubsee2003 I agree

  • I thought that users without full close permissions would see Flagging > Off-Topic rather than Closing > Off-Topic. Hmm. Jul 27, 2013 at 1:05

    @MichaelPetrotta not anymore. I'm pretty sure it shows "closing" now. Flagging as "it doesn't belong here" is more of a non-vote close vote. It just throws it to the close vote queue. Jul 27, 2013 at 1:08
  • this is in the low quality review queue @MichaelPetrotta

  • @Michael We need a switch we can flip to remove our 3k privs so we can reproduce these things.

  • Just found Better flagging as off topic. I think it is a pretty close duplicate since it is a feature request asking to add this feature. Jul 27, 2013 at 8:12
  • I am just shocked that such a carefully formatted paint image could receive downvotes!! ;))

A close recommendation flag sends the question to the close votes queue in /review. Full 3k privs allow access to a shiny 'other' box, which allows a freehand reason. For you, not yet having CV privs, a simple OT flag will be sufficient to get the post attention from those that can close it.

  • The one you feel is most applicable. I can't see the example question, so I don't know about that, but choose the best one. It doesn't really matter, as long as it gets in front of those who can take action.

  • Maybe the 'minimal understanding required' or the 'request for tools' reasons?

  • I appreciate what you're saying, but it's a hole in the process

    @Skippy I agree, there is a hole. Take a look at the dup I just added. Looks like the custom reason doesn't even appear to the close voters, so it doesn't actually matter what you select. Seems counter intuitive, but that's how it is design currently. Jul 27, 2013 at 8:18
