Since the beginning of the north hemisphere term, we've seen a sharp increase in questions that consist solely of a dump of a homework assignment, where there is no question, only “solve this”.
Our homework policy states:
We do not try to decide which questions are homework, and we don't use a special tag. (…)
Most homework-dump-style questions should be dealt with by usual quality-control
The “usual quality control” includes the built-in close reasons, in particular
unclear what you're asking
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.
There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.
Should we have a custom close reason for this? Custom close reasons combine a canned comment with closing, so they seem well-suited for this purpose.
We should take care that the wording makes it clear that questions about a homework assignment are ok, and provide advice (probably with a link, since the close reason needs to be at most one sentence or two) as to what the asker can do to improve his post.
This meta post has some interesting opinions and advice on dealing with homework dumps.
