The question I asked has been flagged as on hold. What does it mean? (I am not a native English speaker)

    The same thing it means on every Stack Exchange site: no one else can answer as your question is off-topic; on hold is defined in many general-reference books. Dictionary, thesaurus, etc. Jan 31, 2014 at 5:25
  • Thanks for your info.

  • No one can answer it until it is reopened. Which might happen if you edit your question to improve its quality to the point where people will vote to reopen.

You say something is on hold when it is paused or stopped for a while. Your question is not related to programming so it is 'on hold', i.e , it cannot be answered till it is shifted to the right forum.
