This question is missing context or other details: Please improve the question by providing additional context, which ideally includes your thoughts on the problem and any attempts you have made to solve it.

is the only one with any sort of site-specific text, it sounds like we either need another off-topic reason or to break this one down (or possibly both).

For comparison, Stack Overflow has 5 reasons with site-specific text.

Also, if possible, we should avoid having "umbrella" close reasons; even if this means creating not one new reason, but two or three.
