The question "How to effectively do manual debugging?" has been closed. Why?
The close reasons stated are:
- "it's ambiguous", but it seems clear to me what's being asked (the answers seem to indicate the same)
- "it's vague, overly broad", but it's about a pretty concrete, real-world scenario
- "it's incomplete", if so: what's missing?
- "it's rhetorical" that's probably not it (right?)
In addition it seems to me that it fulfills most, if not all of the requirements from the FAQ about "good subjective":
- inspire answers that explain “why” and “how”.
- tend to have long, not short, answers.
- have a constructive, fair, and impartial tone.
- invite sharing experiences over opinions.
- insist that opinion be backed up with facts and references.
- are more than just mindless social fun.
There's probably a good explanation that I'm missing. Then the final point of interest, the close reason includes:
For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
So let me know: what things can I do to clarify the question and get it reopened?
Edit: After reading the answers and comment I figured I should('ve) add(ed) the reason why I like to see this question open, improved, and with great answers.
When trying to help others improve their SO question, new users often end up asking "But what can I do to improve my question?". I was hoping that there could be an SE-network-place that has answers to that question, or at least the sub-question on manual debugging strategies, so I could link to it in comments. I thought this particular existing question could be the right place.
PS. The "not constructive" a.k.a. no polling questions policy does make more sense to me than "not a real question", and I wouldn't know if the question could be salvaged to become "constructive" again.
