Consider a question where:
- It is clear what is being asked
- More information (code and/or stack traces) is needed to give anyone a realistic chance of answering the question
- The asker is not responding to requests for more informaiton
This has been discussed before and I used to think I knew the answer - incomplete information is not one of the multiple choice answers for the reason for closing a question so it is not a valid reason for closing and you should just downvote instead.
But recently there has been a trend for people to vote to close as "not a real question" instead.
Is this now the official (or de-facto) policy? Should we all start doing the same?
Note: this is a support question, I am not suggesting any change to the closing mechanism or penalties for those who vote to close for the wrong reasons. There are already plenty of feature requests for that.
