Please refrain from marking as closed 3 year old questions with answers.

This question is a decent example: change block call order in checkout

It makes the moderation queue difficult to sift through. Let's focus on answering current questions. If you feel something is egregious, however, please flag for moderators instead of close voting.

    To clarify why flags are preferable: close votes can pile on without a feedback loop. A moderator or the team of mods can make the decision to close or, more appropriately for old questions, flag them as off topic but retained for historical value.

  • So @philwinkle for old questions with no answers at all, that do not seem to be answerable, it is still OK to raise a close flag in your opinion?

Well I reckon I'm faulty on this one.

Whenever I see people talking about a module provider (in this case it was ebizmarts) I always search for questions regarding this module provider and I mark them for closing.

I felt like it was a good thing to do for off topic questions that went through the moderators' net. I didn't think it was bad to do it for answered questions. Apologies

    It was good for M2EE questions which had zero answers. For historical questions with answers, best to leave it alone.
