In this post it just seems like the OP is trying to get someone to do his homework for him. I tried to flag it but it didnt really fit any of the reasons. Is this classified as a very low quality post? What's the best way to handle something like this?

This New reason for closing: Insufficient Effort sounds reasonable but there is no option when I tried to flag it

  • @Azik There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs. that just doesn't seem to fit it right. I mean all he wants is a piece code, hes just to lazy to do it himself – TsSkTo Aug 30 '13 at 9:16

    Maybe "Off Topic", " Questions asking for code must demonstrate a minimal understanding of the problem being solved. Include attempted solutions, why they didn't work, and the expected results. See also: Stack Overflow question checklist" – Matt Aug 30 '13 at 9:20
  • If the OP really needs a simple piece of code with good explanation, then it should be a duplicate which should be discussed in the site earlier.If the concept is not discussed earlier and then there is no need of flagging. – Azik Aug 30 '13 at 9:22
  • @Matt I get this description for "Off Topic" on the choice list This question does not appear to be about programming within the scope defined in the help center. Has its definition been expanded? – TsSkTo Aug 30 '13 at 9:28
  • @TsSkTo: If you click the "Off Topic" choice, it should change to a further pane of options. It does for me at least, but that might be dependant on reputation. – Matt Aug 30 '13 at 10:01
  • Yup, that did it. I must have been distracted by all the unicorns in my office. @Matt if you make that an answer I'll accept it. – TsSkTo Aug 30 '13 at 10:09
  • -1 Poster must show minimal effort. – Ernest Friedman-Hill Aug 30 '13 at 10:46
  • i agree with @TsSkTo. There should be a do my homework flag or insufficient effort. I guess we are using the must demonstrate a minimal understanding of the problem being solved as its the only one available as it stands – user221081 Aug 30 '13 at 10:59

The "Off Topic" which states that:

Questions asking for code must demonstrate a minimal understanding of the problem being solved. Include attempted solutions, why they didn't work, and the expected results. See also: Stack Overflow question checklist

... would be suitable for this.
