I've seen quite a few questions proposed to be closed as "unclear what you're asking":
and a few more. I voted to leave open (on the above three) because these questions were, to me, clear about what they're asking.
But then I noticed a pattern: these all seem to be "old" questions which has had at least one upvoted answer, but the OP hasn't accepted it. Is this why they were proposed to be closed? If so, shouldn't we close them for the "right" reason?
I understand that closing these questions may favorably affect some of our site statistics. But it's just confusing when review page shows
Should this question be closed as: unclear what you're asking?
and yet the question was sort of clear about what it's asking.
Perhaps we should add a closing reason specifically for answered-but-not-yet-accepted questions?
listingsas I could, starting with the older ones. egreg's answer hit the nail on the head in each of those three cases. In many cases, you can kind of understand the problem, but something (most often compilable code) is missing and the OP is long gone; as a result, the question is unanswerable. Better to close it, if only to reopen it later, should the OP better specify what the problem is.
