This is, in a certain way, a reiteration of Henri Menke's question/request "Please add more off-topic close reasons". At the moment of writing this, this question has one highly voted answer, which did, however, not get accepted.
The reason for this post is simple: rather frequently questions are closed because it is "unclear what you are asking" or "too broad". A non-negligible subset of these questions appears to be closed for other reasons: too little effort by the OP. Such questions are also referred to as "do-this-for-me".
My question here is: does the fact that "too little effort" (or something equivalent) is not among the options one can choose mean that
- we are not supposed to close these questions, or
- we do not want to confront the OP with the statement "you show too little effort" and thus choose another reason to close it?
If the second option describes the situation, wouldn't it be better to add a new option that politely says that we expect more effort?
Of course, it is tricky because a good question does not necessarily involve a lot of effort. In fact, some of the highest voted questions are very basic and do not involve any MWE. So, in this sense, "too little effort" may not be a valid reason for closure on its own. On the other hand, "unclear what you are asking" does not seem to be right either.
P.S. If we add new options for closure, we may also consider adding "Solved in the comments" because this happens quite frequently, and usually the official reason is "Off-topic: solved in the comments" but I can't see why a question that has been solved in the comments "off-topic". Of course, I do not disagree with closing it because it is really no longer an open question.
