As Mari-Lou A pinpointed in Extraordinary spike in low-quality questions by 1 rep users, we have been swamped with Low-Quality-questions (LQQs) recently and it has been overwhelmingly difficult to deal with them especially when high-rep users are not actively involved in close-voting them and informing new users of the rules and guidelines of this community.
We can't read all the questions on this community and some users might not notice some LQQs that should have been closed unless they use the moderator tool where you can see the questions with most close-votes.
I want to propose a weekly or bi-weekly (once in two weeks) Meta post to include LQQs that should be closed, but received not enough votes so that they could be closed more efficiently and effectively. If they don't receive enough votes, the existing close-votes will be cancelled and it would be more difficult to close them and ultimately delete them.
If we don't close a blatantly-off-topic question, it could be used as an excuse or justification for other uses to ask another similar off-topic question.
The format of a weekly or bi-weekly post would be like this:
Title: LQQs on the week 1 of 2016 Feb.
What does swing exactly mean?: Even though the OP says (s)he checked a dictionary, it is general reference.
The difference between the phrases “leave the house” and “leave home”: Lack of research, general reference. Better suited on ELL.
Another question: Brief reason why it should be closed.
and so on.
This post could be edited by any user who wants to include a question that should have been closed in the previous week and questions that are closed would be deleted from the post.
What is your opinion about this?
Edit: I am adding more questions that should have been closed in my opinion.
Shorter words for “likely to be IN apartment names”?: Unclear, no context. Received only 2 close-votes.
What preposition should be used with “map”, “in” or “on”? (please see my examples): General reference and could be a duplicate. All 3 close-votes were cancelled.
Usage of “take a step forward”: General reference, lack of research, better suited on ELL. All close-votes were cancelled.
Is “make a day” ok to use in an ad slogan?: Primarily opinion-based. The three votes could be cancelled soon.
Is it normal to struggle a lot trying to understand spoken English in a noisy environment?: Primarily opinion-based. The three votes could be cancelled soon.
Is WHO an acronym or an initialism?: Duplicate. The two close-votes could be cancelled soon.
Is that the correct use of past perfect?: No research. Why is that? type of question. The two close-votes could be cancelled soon.
Is this correct? “One of the things that makes him great is…”: Asked in Mar. 2015. Exact duplicate.
A few of them above could be still in a queue. The purpose of this suggested post would be prevent as many close-votes as possible from being cancelled and close/delete those questions.
