As per this post there's some confusion on what some close vote reasons mean. It was brought up that on CS Theory.SE, questions that are too basic fall outside of the scope since it is a site for advanced CS problems, not easy to look up stuff.
My problem with "off topic" is that while "out of scope" fits that definition, it makes it appear that the topic of a post is out of scope, rather than the specific question. In my opinion, Not a Real Question (too vague ect) is a better close reason for questions that are either too basic or lack attempts at research. NARQ implies that the basis of the question is sound but the specific question needs fixing. Off topic, IMO, implies that the question is unsalvagable and not fit for the site even if it was an outstanding question.
What close reason should we give to questions that are too basic or lacking in research effort?
