Image & text of the Software recs close reason (just so no-one thinks this was closed already ;)…
Questions seeking product, service, or learning material recommendations are off-topic because they become outdated quickly and attract opinion-based answers. Instead, describe your situation and the specific problem you're trying to solve. Share your research. Here are a few suggestions on how to properly ask this type of question.
It's long been apparent that any type of software recommendation question gets short shrift in SU, no matter how carefully worded.
Is it time we updated the close message & associated close vote reason to point towards Software Recommendations SE rather than a 9-year-old meta post that isn't really going to help the OP any more?
It would appear this topic was last visited 8 years ago - Should we split up the off-topic "shopping" closing reason?
Suggestions welcome for re-wording.
