Today I came across two old questions (both by the same user and posted on the same day, oddly enough) which are very similar in form but have been treated very differently:
- https://scifi.stackexchange.com/questions/96/are-there-any-plans-for-a-new-star-trek-tv-series (closed, 3 pending votes to delete)
- Are there any plans for a new Babylon 5 series or movies? (open, has never been closed)
This seems rather silly. Whatever our position is on such questions, it should at least be consistent. Unless there's some difference I'm missing between these two questions, they should either both be closed or both be open. The purpose of this meta post is to find out which.
What is the community's position on such questions?
If anyone finds more examples like these two questions (whether open or closed), give me a link and I'll edit them in.
Update: the second of the above questions has now also been closed, and the first has been deleted. Seems fairly conclusive.
