I've been reviewing on and off for a year or 2 and the use of the "unclear what you're asking" flag has been bugging me for a while now. It just seems like too many sub-reasons lumped together.
As you know there are quite a few questions like:
"I want this and that (...) and I want it to look exactly like that (...) some code excerpt from a homework assignment (...) gimmeez the code now plz hurry"
According to the accepted answer here I should just downvote them and move on, which is fine.
When I review questions like these in the Close queue however, should I close them? I usually do, and the most appropriate reason I think according to the FAQ = "unclear what you're asking" flag - but that's not true. Most of the time it is blatantly obvious what they are asking, they just didn't put any effort in to asking the question.
Is this the correct reason to use?
Or would it be a good idea to specifically have a reason to address this situation? There certainly are enough questions to tag with it. Maybe something like "You have not provided enough evidence that you have attempted a solution" or "Please provide steps on what you have attempted so far". I believe this new reason "try harder" would be less ambiguous than "its unclear".
What close reason to use for Gimme codez?
