What Music History questions are on- and off-topic? and What distinguishes primarily opinion-based vs. opinion-based, but on-topic questions? were unilaterally closed, but why not leave them open and let users decide if they help?
Dr Mayhem and I specifically asked you not to post a list of questions as a meta post in our chat yesterday and we warned you that they would be closed as not constructive.They were both closed with acquitted explanation.
What Music History questions are on- and off-topic? was closed as unclear since music history is on topic and the questions you posted were about interpretation, finding examples, and knowing what he was thinking which aren't really good topics for the site in general whether it is historic or not which was explained already.
Comment on closed question:
As pointed out in the chat we had yesterday history questions are on topic, but not every question about a historic composer makes sense on this site. Listing other questions does not help solve the issues with yours.
What distinguishes primarily opinion-based vs. opinion-based, but on-topic questions? was just too broad which is what we kept saying in chat yesterday. There's 22 questions there each about different topics and different concepts with different expectations of answers.
Comment on closed question:
Canada, is is not a useful to compare and contrast 21 different questions about different topics and subjects to the one you asked. The reason for the closure was given in the comments by me along with the general primarily option based question explanation and if you want to talk about reopening the question please do, but this isn't helpful. Please also reference the don't ask section of the FAQ and the chat we had from yesterday https://chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/70687/canada-discussion-on-closures.
Meta is where we can talk about site policy and discuss clearing things up like the FAQ or in depth reasons why things were close, but these questions in there current form don't help anyone. Please read the feedback and if you want clarity please request it either in comments or on the meta, but pulling in irreverent questions and not focusing on the reasons given for the closed questions does not help the situation.
I'm going to try to address this whole situation in an answer here. It might not be the most appropriate place to write this, but I think it's worth a shot and I'll be brief.
One of the most important aspects of the Stack Exchange system is that each site (what I like to call "Stacks") is focused fairly narrowly on a specific topic. Focus has an upside and a downside. The upside to focus is a focused system can be more closely targeted on certain goals and therefore more effective at accomplishing those goals. The downside is that "focus is about saying 'no'" (Steve Jobs), which means the more you focus, the more things you exclude.
You have asked several subtle, and in some ways, interesting questions lately. For many people, and clearly for you, these may be important and compelling questions. On this Stack, however, your recent questions are outside of the area that this Stack is focused on.
For this Stack to be most effective in its area of focus, the community must 'say no' to questions that are outside of that focus. Asking more questions of the kind that you have asked lately will just perpetuate the cycle of those questions being closed and you coming to the meta to ask why they are closed.
One way for you to get an understanding for what kinds of questions work best in the area this community is focused on is to sort the list of all questions by votes. The highest voted questions are the ones that most often exemplify what this community is focused on.
I've said from time to time that the on-topic rules on music.SE can be unclear, and could be improved.
The mods and some other regular users of the site often don't seem to agree that there are such problems, and seem to interpret attempts to help clarify the rules as "Oh no, this user is trying to be disruptive".
(Of course some other users have pointed out these problems too - and some of those have become frustrated and left.)
I wish I could offer advice on how to ask meta questions that might lead to rule refinements and clarifications in a way that is productive, but I've not yet succeeded.
In particular, the mods seem to accept as true the idea that comparing questions is not helpful. This seems illogical - comparing different questions seems to me to be an excellent way of checking the rules against real world examples and seeing if they really 'work' as intended. (Having said that, 21 questions, as listed in one of your questions, probably does make your meta question too broad).
In general, though, I think good faith should be assumed in the meta, and I wonder if the closure here is partly due to a carry-over of emotion from the chat.
