I've nominated the question to be reopened. The request is clear enough to me and is likely to be useful to other users as well. I believe the only issue is that there is no indication of what the user has tried. This in itself is not a valid reason for closing a question. If users take offense at a perceived lack of effort, they should feel free to down ...

Though I would like to point out that I am not asking for a product recommendation, service or learning material, though I can see why it seems like I am. (Although granted, learning material may/does apply.) While you might not be asking for a product recommendation, you are seeking our opinion, in order to determine if a browser can be trusted. ...

Does anyone go and check questions on hold and make a decision about them? They are deleted, subject to a specified set of conditions. There is a automated cleanup process for this. The script is known as the roomba: The system will automatically delete closed (not as a duplicate), unlocked questions with zero or negative score having no positively ...

Its pretty broad. We don't do yes/no answers, we do answers in detail, and literally the only way to answer your question is with a hardware recommendation. So literally the only way to answer your question is to take an arm machine, check processor flags, and post what the machine is. And you would end up with more than one answer, which dosen't work for ...

Because you asked "why". Why can only be answered by the people who made the decision being questioned. Why is not an appropriate question, most of the time, in a tech-support Q-and-A context. While we can guess as to the reasons (and there were comments enough on your post doing precisely this) these legacy icons remain, we cannot actually state with ...

I closed that, and I felt that that it was a hardware recommendation question, amongst other things. You're asking for 1. Hardware 2. You have a price range in mind. Its a hardware recommendation question, even if you're asking about a class of hardware. It was also a question that seeked to poll for options - In other words, as per the help center ...

The issue is it’s unclear because your problem is idiosyncratic to that other website. Additionally, SQL has utterly nothing to do with what you are attempting to do with is fetch things from a URL that is not provided in a way in which you can simply download it through a direct URL or some kind of scripting to trigger a download. At the end of the day, I ...

Questions that are still termed "on hold" (not "closed") are not automatically removed because we want to allow users time to revise their question to get it reopened. After five days, the status text changes to "closed," but there is no functional difference between the two states. Shortly after that, questions that received sufficiently negative feedback ...

For the record, when this was in the Reopen Votes queue, I skipped the review, but if somebody held a gun to my head and forced me to choose, I would have hit Leave Closed. The question is no longer opinion-based, but it definitely is too broad. Defending against Internet malware is a massive ordeal - there's an entire industry about it! That's definitely ...

Is there any way to appeal the decision? As gparyani commented, there was already an automatic "appeal". Your edit bumped the question into a review queue where the community looked at the revised question. The reviewers assessed that it should not be reopened. The main other way to ask for a question to be reconsidered is to raise it here in Meta, which ...

The are ways to appeal such a decision, but the decision isn't incorrect; such an appeal would be unsuccessful. You can check that it is off-topic by viewing their help. Looking on Android.SE is helpful since searching for "broken screen files" there produces 94 results, the method of using software on a PC and a cable to remotely control the phone is ...

Your edit has pushed the question into the Reopen Review Queue, and will be assessed by the community as to whether they think it should be reopened. You don't need to do anything more for now. Once you have 3,000 reputation you would be able to vote to reopen the question, which would also put it into the queue for reviewing. For those who can see the ...
