Due to this question, the close reason on Super User not computer related has been replaced with off-topic now:

close reasons http://www.imageuploading.com/ims/pic.php?u=19720qFeUy&i=122378

This is much better than it used to be.

But isn't the close reason gaming a dupe of that now? Gaming is also considered off-topic by the faq. I'd vote to remove the gaming close-reason.

    Would help reduce the size of the close panel too.

I would support this change. Off-topic would include gaming questions IMO. I will also support anything to reduce the size of the close window in any logical way. I vote to remove the gaming close reason.


For reference: there's now a gaming SE site.
