Good news everyone! As you may have noticed, there have been changes to the close system. One of these changes is that there are new reasons for closing a question. We (as a community) get to tweak the off-topic reasons. This post is designed to be a place for any suggested additions or change in verbage.
Default Off-Topic Close Reason
Shown when no 2 off-topic reasons match on a closed question.
- This question does not appear to be about electronics design, within the scope defined in the help center.
Custom Off-Topic Close Reasons
Questions seeking recommendations for specific products or places to purchase them are off-topic as they are rarely useful to others and quickly obsolete. Instead, describe your situation and the specific problem you're trying to solve.
Questions on the use of electronic devices are off-topic as this site is intended specifically for questions on electronics design.
Questions on appliance repair are off-topic unless they involve specific troubleshooting steps and demonstrate a good understanding of the underlying design of the device being repaired. See: Is asking on how to fix a faulty circuit on topic?
Please limit one new reason (or modification on an existing reason) for each answer posted. Keep in mind that these should be reasons that you expect to use frequently, not just once or twice.
