Why is there the tag single-word-requests if questions that use it are closed? My question was not horrible or unusual, it had research and I specifically asked for one word in a given scenario. There are hundreds of these questions on this site - yet mine specifically got closed while many others stayed open.
Is this either
a faulty tag which should have further clarified guidelines
a separate rule I don't know yet
or was my question closed for a different reason?
I have looked at Against single-word-requests, What's wrong with single-word-requests?, and Warn people of the rules of single-word-requests before posting. It seems to say that questions with more thought/research and a sample sentence in them could stay open. I thought mine had a decent amount of research to it and it had a sample sentence so those wouldn't have been reasons of closure.
It also sounds like high rep users in this community dislike single-word-requests, which may make sense: but we should have further clarification on this. If it is an unspoken rule to not ask these types of questions, could we make that more clear?
It is tough for a user like me to spend time asking what I thought was a high-quality question, and then having it closed with very little communication behind what I did wrong.
Update: The question has now been reopened.
