Why was my proposal What's that Song? closed?

1 Answer 1


In no particular order, things I can think of (I didn't notice this proposal til after it was closed):

  • no well-defined audience
  • would practically require multimedia (audio and/or video) to work
  • can already look up pretty much any lyric with a quick web search
  • all questions would end up either:
    • having single, canonical answers, or
    • would require frequent updating when songs are covered/remastered/edited/remixed/etc
  • 2
    Also... Music Fans didn't arbitrarily ban ID questions on a whim; There was a reason they got rid of them – those questions were frequently low-quality, and continually caused problems for the moderators/community over time (as detailed across numerous posts on their Meta).
