Every now and then, there appear some questions that are simply just off-topic for this site since they are not:
- Questions about math related to computer graphics,
- Questions about a specific graphics programming or debugging problem,
- Questions about a specific graphics API,
- Questions about a specific graphics algorithm or concept.
as specified by the on-topic help page.
The possible ways to flag or vote on such questions are:
Questions asking us to recommend or find a book, tool, software, tutorial or other off-site resource are off-topic for Computer Graphics as they tend to attract opinionated answers and spam. Instead, describe your problem or need and the steps, if any, you've taken to solve it.
Questions about creating artwork or using graphics software as an end-user are off-topic for this site. Consider if your question might be re-written to fit on Graphic Design. If your question is about Blender, it might fit on Blender.

The first 2 options are too specific to cover all (the majority of?) possible off-topic questions. The third option is also kind of obsolete for some reasons. So I have to use the fourth "custom" option. While I usually add a comment when raising a flag or casting a close vote anyways, I am still wondering why there is no "Blatantly off-topic" flag/vote like on other sites like StackOverflow and Game Development SE. I see that there is no absolute need for this due to the "custom comment" option, however, I think it would be much more useful and frequently used than option 1-3.
