On Robotics.SE they have the following option in the Close --> Off-Topic list.
Life Questions are off-topic. Questions about choosing how to spend your time (what book to read, which class to take, what robotics project to construct, what career to pursue, etc.) may be about difficult decisions, and they are often important, but they are too specific to your own situation and are unlikely to help future visitors to the site. They would be better off asked in Robotics Chat.
The quote says it all, what type of regular questions brought this option alive.
I think recently we had a question in this category and as we did not discuss such topic so far I though that we should now.
As IoT is quite a popular buzzword there could be questions (very very broadly speaking here) like:
"I want to do some IoT, where should I start".
Currently it does not seem to be a serious problem and maybe we do not need this closing reason at all, but we can talk about it in advance.
Maybe there are three ways:
- We won't have some much of these questions, those few simply can be closed as "primarily opinion-based". Maybe comment these words if they really apply.
- Include this text only in the Help Center like here.
Add it as a close reason.
+1 It is completely unnecessary.
