We get these like once a week. They are off-topic. They are too localized. Can we add this as a specific off-topic reason in the help tour or something? I feel like there has to be some way to let newbies know this in advance so we aren't constantly closing down first-time questions and/or first-time SE users.
The "what to write" close reason currently reads:
This question appears to be off-topic because asking what to write or asking for help rephrasing a sentence or passage are both off-topic here, as such questions are very unlikely to help anybody else.
(There are links in there, but I didn't reconstruct them here.)
"Help me write X", where the OP is asking for text, seems to be a "what to write" question.
Based on a suggestion in a comment, I've modified the "what to writer" entry in the help center on-topic page. This is in the "what not to ask" list:
- Asking how to write a particular kind of email, letter, memo, or other correspondence -- or, more generally. asking "what should I write about" (more about this here).
