I'm new here but so far I've seen many times (inc myself) how questions are put on hold way too quick!
Without offending those who put them on hold, I think people are doing it too quickly and without much thought sometimes. There are many questions that are not perfect but are reasonable and understandable to more expert people or just those that understand them better.
Also - sometimes instead of letting a person to fix-edit his question, it it hold at once. This leads to questions being somewhat 'stuck' when they can be answered or edited quickly (with other's help sometimes)
I'm not you shouldn't use this option at all, or that there aren't questions that actually deserve that 'treatment' but i think that you should give a 12-24 hours for the community and original poster, to answer or edit the questions.
Does anyone else think so? Is it something that will be able to change?
Alright so I was at fault, since on-hold questions can be commented it is far more reasonable. But Since my rep was low i wasn't even able to realize that >.<
So - I guess this Q can be closed/erased - whichever. It's a little too bad the line that answers that ^^ is the last line in the on-hold help page, which i did read just well - not to the last word apparently :/
I do recommend some sort of edit to the https://meta.stackexchange.com/help/closed-questions page - too much text + not enough listing and use of typography = hard to read!!
