First off, this is what our main closure and off topic dialogs look like at present:



SO seems to be tackling "Request for Work" type questions head on as per https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/185142/what-should-the-predefined-off-topic-reasons-be-for-stack-overflow

Questions must demonstrate a minimal understanding of the problem being solved. Tell us what you've tried to do, why it didn't work, and how it should work. See also: Stack Overflow question checklist.

We see such questions fairly often too, with a long list of requirements that essentially boils down to: Write a complete script/macro/program for me that does X, Y and Z. No code included or anything to indicate what has been tried yet. Shouldn't we take similar steps like SO has (or plans to) and add a closure reason for such questions? What do you all think?
