This question already has an answer here:

I frequently come across questions in the Close Vote Review where it seems that more than one, if not several close reasons apply. I'm wondering if there is a prescribed method for addressing these; which close reasons should take precedence?

Simply put: If a question is asked that is unclear, too broad, off-topic because they haven't included valid code to reproduce their issue, and off-topic because they haven't demonstrated an understanding of the problem being solved what is the correct response?

  • No worries. Not always easy to find if you don't know it exists. – Bart Aug 21 '13 at 16:57
  • @Bart I was curios because questions that are put "on hold" or closed list the close reason partially as corrective guidance to the OP, if only one of many issues is given doesn't that leave the OP with the impression that they only need to fix the reason given – apaul Aug 21 '13 at 17:02

  • @chuex that's a much better fit thanks – apaul Aug 21 '13 at 17:07
  • Sometimes I think we could use an "all of the above" close reason – apaul Aug 21 '13 at 17:08
