Recently, two questions were closed for different reasons:
- Being addressed as “Anata” by a Japanese male friend (closed as "primarily opinion-based")
- Tsunetero from tsundere (closed as "unclear what you're asking")
If I remember correctly, "too broad" has been used to close this kind of question, too. While I think questions like these can be closed, I also feel the reasons used to close them are not very spot-on.
- "Primarily opinion-based" is usually for questions like "Who is the best Japanese novelist?", but the questions mentioned above theoretically have one correct answer.
- "Unclear what you're asking" is mainly used for really poorly-written questions and non-questions.
- "Too broad" is usually for questions like "Tell me everything about kanji" or "I have 5 different questions about this paragraph".
So which is the best reason to close questions which meet the following criteria?
- What OP is asking for is clear, but the way to reach the correct answer is unclear.
- OP is expecting a short answer.
- Any answer will be a guess because of the lack of the context.
- OP is not willing to (or not able to) provide additional details.
- There is no way to verify if the answer is correct.
Or maybe we can add a "primarily speculative" or "insufficient context" close reason for this type of question? The description can be something like this:
Please edit the question to include enough context. As it's currently written, any answer to this question will be a speculation, and it is impossible to verify its correctness.
