A recent incident caused me to, among other things, look at the help center article What topics can I ask about here? in relation to the "existing literary works" close reason:
The community has decided that questions about existing literary works, except in a writing-specific context, are off-topic. For more information, see this meta answer.
The help center, in turn, says under the off-topic heading:
- Questions seeking to interpret or analyze an existing work (except when applied to a real-world writing project).
"Questions about" existing literary works seems broader than Questions seeking to interpret or analyze an existing work.
Do we need to clarify the help center article to be more in line with the wording in the close reason? Or do we want to adjust the wording in the close reason? If either, then how?
