Today I asked the community for some recommendations on a product carousel extension.
I also got the answer which I was looking for.
The question was flagged to be closed, and so far here are the votes:
too broad - 3
There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.
primarily opinion-based - 1
Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.
I don't see how the question falls into any of those topics (too broad? I've asked simply for a product carousel extension - and primarily opinion based? What the heck?)
In any case, I feel like people are too hastily flagging questions to be closed (who knows why, maybe to up the sites' Q:A ratio).
Would appreciate some insight into this, hasty flagging is going to take value away from the community.
