Q&A

Welcome to Codidact Meta!

Codidact Meta is the meta-discussion site for the Codidact community network and the Codidact software. Whether you have bug reports or feature requests, support questions or rule discussions that touch the whole network – this is the site for you.

Categories should support a "closed by default" question setting

I propose that a category should be possible to set such that questions are closed by default (with a specific, selectable close reason that applies to all questions posted to that category) immediately when they are posted.

One major use case for this would be something like a question sandbox, where questions can be posted and refined as questions, and once they have been, they can be moved to where they actually belong and opened for answers.

Historically and in Some Other places, this has been done by having a specific Meta question where proposed questions are posted as answers, which then need to be copied manually to the main Q&A area once they have been refined. Having a feature like this would improve the workflow and, among other things, allow preserving the edit history of the question.
