My basic question is closed. I wonder what kind of questions are considered non-basic. Then I browse the "Questions" and find most of the questions are about what kind of questions should be closed. My question is :

How "closed" is related to English language & usage?

    Can you try to rephrase your question? I have absolutely no idea what you're trying to ask here. – waiwai933 Dec 17 '12 at 8:47
  • Probably your question was of no academic/scientific interest. This site is for linguists, etymologists, and (serious) English language enthusiasts. If you're none of these it's unlikely your question will be advanced enough. You may be interested in supporting the proposed site "English for Language Learners", area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/41665/… where the requirements will be much lower. – SF. Dec 17 '12 at 8:57

    I think maybe you were browsing the meta questions, which discuss the ELU site in general. To get back to questions about English Language and Usage, you'd need to go back to the main site – J.R. Dec 17 '12 at 8:57

As J.R. said, you may have wandered into Meta English Language and Usage instead of the main site. At English Language and Usage, we discuss the English language. At Meta, we discuss the EL&U site. Yes, it's confusing. You probably want to go here.
