If your question is unanswered and unvoted upon, there are (theoretically) no limits whatsoever to changing any aspect of that question including, but not limited to, the tags, the property, the question itself or any other part of it. If you're intending to utterly revise it, however, you would probably be better creating a new question and deleting the ...

I want to offer my viewpoint, about how I vote on questions like this. Sometimes I vote to close the questions, and sometimes I vote to leave them open. There is a judgement call involved, which is partially (but only partially) subjective. The key issue for me is whether the question seems to be asking for a canonical answer that the questioner has ...

I'm reasonably sure that the problem here is your (extensive) mention of General Order 19, a fan-fiction creation from the ST-Minutiae website. It seems like you're asking people to agree or disagree with a rule that was conceived outside of the Star Trek canon, which typically includes the films and TV shows. I can see things from your perspective. You ...

It should be reopened. We have a very clear policy on questions that can't be answered definitively using existing canon questions: They're fine. They are not primarily opinion based. If we don't know the answer, that's an answer in itself. Just answer "we don't know why", and that's that. We can also look at canon sources and make reasonable guesses - "...

The problem with this one is that there's no "right" answer. Superman can lift a near-infinite amount, the human Torch can generate a near-infinite amount of heat, etc etc. Your meta question hits the nail on the head perfectly; I was looking forward to all the comic book wonks battling over the best scenario. We're not a discussion board, we're a Q&...

Questions like this should generally be closed under the first off-topic reason: This question does not appear to be about Science Fiction & Fantasy Stack Exchange or the software that powers the Stack Exchange network within the scope defined in the help center. While I won't go so far as to say the primarily-opinion-based reason should never be ...

Your current question, as-is at the time of this response, seems to be split between two different main concepts. One is asking if there is a reason Worf didn't appear in the episode subsequent to his disappearance once the Enterprise-C appears. The other is why a specific line was assigned to a different actor/character. Both of these, taken strictly by ...

Yes, close reasons are sometimes misused. In particular, some people vote to close as Primarily Opinion-Based just because the answer to the question is unknown. This occurrence is sufficiently common that we've already had several meta posts emphasising that "we don't know" answers are OK and don't make a question closeworthy. See Are answers that state &...
