I've been much more active in the review queues lately and ran across a few questions over the past days with votes to close for "Unclear what you're asking".
It's not like the questions were gibberish, more like lacking in details or proper terminology and coming from novice users. I was glad to see that, for most of them, there was already an ongoing dialogue with the OP to help them better phrase their question and understand their problem.
Although the close vote requires the OP to:
"Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question."
I think it needs to be considered that novices don't always know the proper terminology to their issue and guided questions from the community are likely more helpful than a close vote. I also find "Unclear what you're asking" has a lot to do with the readers' perception. I could take a bunch of questions out there regarding software that I don't use and consider them "Unclear what you're asking", but I disgress...
Is there really a good reason to vote to close for "Unclear what you're asking" as opposed to just asking the OP to clarify keypoints of the question in a more guided manner?
I feel that by voting to close right off the bat instead of trying to explain to users what they need to provide in order for us to be able to help them, we are passing a good opportunity to educate new users to our format.
