This is my proposal:
For the “Ask about” section I propose changing it to:
- Governments, policies, macroeconomics, and political processes.
- Real questions that you’ve encountered.
Anything else that fits within the scope of this site
(Note: I’m not really sure if a link to meta is the best idea for new users, feel free to comment what you think and why.)
I removed issues from the first bullet point because it makes it sound like it would be okay to ask a push question. That is the same reason why I removed problems from the second bullet point. Other than that, I just tried to improve the grammar. I also moved the part about being specific to the don’t ask about, because it grammatically didn’t make sense in its original position. I also mentioned Macroeconomics since it’s on topic here.
For the “Don’t ask about” section I propose:
- Anything not directly related to governments, policies, macroeconomics, and political processes.
- Anything where all answers would have to be based off of opinions and not facts.
- Anything that would require extraordinarily long answers.
- Anything that doesn’t have enough details to be answered.
I didn’t do much here except improve the grammar and tell question askers to be clear. I didn’t add a bullet point asking question askers not to discredit, because that’s something you shouldn’t do when you ask, not something you shouldn’t ask about. I also didn’t add a bullet point asking about the “Internal motivations” close reason because any question asking for internal motivations would have to have answers based off of opinion. I also mentioned macroeconomics because it is on topic here.
As an aside, I really wish that these were titled “Ask” and “Don’t ask” instead of “Ask about” and “Don’t ask about” because then I could tell question askers not to ask questions that need more focus and attempt to discredit, but oh well.
