New or inexperienced users are sometimes faced with their question (or answer) being closed without any detailed feedback, or even without any comments on their post.
While this is definitely the way to handle spam, it would frustrate users in particular when they put quite some effort into their post. I am afraid that it would even scare them away from CV.
⮚ shouldn't serious users get least one individual feedback before their post is closed?
Here is a recent example. The user split up their question into four points, addressing various thoughts they had when trying to analyse their data. It thus became a very long and complex question that is probably too complex to answer as a whole. Therefore maybe no answer can be accepted as "answering the question to the fullest". However it is clear (at least to me) that this was a thoughtful question, but for the user the answer is:
Closed. This question needs to be more focused. It is not currently accepting answers. A decision was taken within three hours after the question was posted, but apparently no discussion in comments going on before vtc.
I am afraid that this can make users think they are unwelcome, and that no-one bothered to actually read their question.
What does the community think about this issue?
Personal comments may lead to an endless discussion about closing reasons, and it is perfectly understandable if they are avoided.
Would it be an option to have automatic replies for new users that indicate that it was not a machine that closed their question?
Welcome to CV. At least three reviewers have read your question and found it needs to be more focused. It is therefore not currently accepting answers, but it will be reconsidered when edits have been made to improve it.
