I've noticed that many of our unanswered questions are practically unanswerable without a photo, or in some cases, a lot more detail. I would vote to close many of these, but I would like to know what everyone else thinks.

  • Should I wait for a certain length of inactivity?

  • Should I just vote to close these whenever it seems the original poster isn't coming back?

  • Should I just leave them?

  • Duplicate? meta.gardening.stackexchange.com/q/451/26.

  • @NiallC. Thanks for the link. The question is similar. Basically, I'm asking whether it would be well received for me to go through and vote to close these, or if I would just be a pain. These questions annoy my, because they are clearly unanswerable.

I think we should close them. For the most part if the question is older than a few weeks it has been abandoned by the user and the chances of them returning to provide more details is slim.
