Recently I've asked an off-topic question: How to plot forcing oscillation with damping correctly?. The close notice has only one line of instruction:
This question does not appear to be about physics within the scope defined in the help center.
I agree that this is not about physics, but the lack of continuing instruction bugs me enough to ask on Meta.SE: Where to ask about computational code about mismatched results with scientific theories? It's until the question is completely closed that I see the link to the help page, and it turns out that the guide has been explicitly said in What topics can I ask about here?:
Implementation details of computational tasks
While computational physics is on topic, we are not a programming site. If your question is about implementing computational code - in particular, if it's about writing, compiling, debugging or optimizing code, or about a specific language or library - then it is off topic. It may be suitable for Computational Science or Stack Overflow, however.
Should we implement this on the close notice? The more specific the better. At least it would have save me time to ask the close voter back and forth, and time of anyone who read and answer that MSE question.
