Recently, we've had a fair few questions come in that all relate to mis-handling of assemblies and references. Mostly in conjunction with upgrading, but not exclusively so.
They don't really make for good questions for this site and should be closed; but we have no well-defined reason on our list of "reasons to close" that fits this scenario.
A few examples (not all of them clear-cut out of scope, but borderlining):
- Html.Glass helper not found after installing Glass Mapper v4
- Sitecore 8.2 weblog issue: Method not found: 'Boolean Sitecore.Caching.Cache.ContainsKey(System.Object)'
- Issue in Sitecore 8.2 update 1
- Error while opening Sitecore powershell
In case anyone is wondering why these should be closed at all, the reason is: These questions rarely (if ever) fit our format for What Makes a Good Question, they don't often give an option to provide a meaningful good answer other than "check your assembly references/configs/etc" and they often rely heavily on Q&A in comments before any conclusions can be reached.
And if we consider the longevity of the Q&A; "Issue with Glass Mapper/WFFM/SPE or whatever in 8.1" - well, often, there was no issue with either product or tech - just some basic mistakes or oversights on OPs part. We end up closing these after-the-fact.
- How to use the AntiForgeryToken with a custom log-in form?
- Sitecore 8.2 upgrade to 8.2 update 1 issue
So. Should we add a custom "vote to close" reason to help with these types of questions? And if so, any suggestions on wording would be highly appreciated by this non-native English speaker ;-)
