Over the years, this community has decided what kind of questions should be on- or off-topic for the site.
Some of these decisions have been integrated into the Help Center and into the Close/Flag reasons. While we have control over some parts of the help center and the close reasons descriptions, not everything can fit comfortably in there.
What are the different reasons that a question would be off-topic here that are not listed in the Help Center or in the Close/Flag reasons and what's the meta discussion that has lead to these decisions?
Also, could I get more information about those close reasons that are currently listed?
Like any other reasons, if there is a way to edit the question and bring it on-topic, this should be done instead of voting/flagging to close it.
Note that this question/answer is really meant to be a summary; it's kind of a directory to find at a glance discussions of why we'd vote to close.
