I would like to propose that the "Off Topic" closure flag reasons be updated to include a 3rd option:
- "Aviation related, but inappropriate topic as defined in the off-topic section of the help center."
When initially selecting the Off Topic reason, there is a caveat that the question is off topic because it is not "within the scope defined in the help center". This caveat does indeed mean that aviation topics can be "off topic" by virtue of being an expressly-prohibited topic, such as accident speculation.
However, when proceeding to the final page, there are only two options available and neither one is accurate.
- Blatantly off-topic (this question has nothing to do with aviation)
- This question belongs on another site in the Stack Exchange network
I propose that a 3rd option be added, as described above. At the moment, newer members attempting to flag a question as being "off topic", but still aviation related, can become confused when navigating the menu tree. Selecting this option will help members, who are flagging a question, more accurately define the reason as an off-topic-but-still-aviation-related question.
