I'm new to moderating and I closed this question as "general reference." This is a standard that is used on most other language sites; that if the answer to a question can be easily looked up on a single link, it is closed. Is this a standard that we want to follow on language learning, or should we not follow it here?

  • To be honest it seems Too Broad, I don't know about general reference though – Quill Aug 18 '16 at 16:27

    In general, we should be less keen on closing questions and instead try to turn them into something more relevant and helpful. The goal of SE is to learn from each other, not, "Behave according to the rules or we will discourage you from asking other questions." The ILR question has been rephrased so it's no longer "general reference". – Tsundoku Aug 19 '16 at 19:48
