Until recently, when you selected "close" on a question, the menu of options that was presented looked a lot like the one being described here (if my memory serves me right).

Today I wanted to vote to close a question that lacked the "demonstrate minimal understanding, show code" criterion (#2 and #3 in above link). It seems that the options were changed.

When did they get changed, and why?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Often such questions are "too broad" or "unclear", those that aren't are now on topic. While I would have liked more community involvement before this decision was taken I can get behind that as long as "too broad" is enforced strictly – Richard Tingle Jan 15 '14 at 15:40
