Can we have a "flag as homework question" button where we can effectively put a question on hold for X days in the even that we see a question that is blatantly a homework/assignment question and the ask-er has not even attempted to do any of the work themselves?
There are enough close reasons that apply to homework with no effort at all.
You could think of:
- Too broad: if the question is actually an entire homework assignment, it might be too broad. There are too many possible answers.
- Unclear what you are asking: if the actual problem with that assignment isn't clear. The assignment can be a copy-paste, and the OP didn't mention very clear where his understanding stops.
- On SO, we also have a close reason for debugging help. That one could apply too if the question states 'it doesn't work', but doesn't have some code to reproduce the question.
- A custom close reason you can enter yourself.
Note that strictly homework questions are allowed, as long as they follow the site rules. This isn't a site for just the elite / working class.
