Hi !
I've noticed that many 'closed' questions (with 'answer found elsewhere') were still in the home page Kudoz list. Couldn't they be deleted once the asker has closed them ?
Thanks a lot.

Closed without grading Mar 6, 2006

Hi Krystrad,

I think that questions closed without grading should not be deleted because they might still be helpful to someone. The answers suggested might put the person searching the glossaries on the right track and besides, the asker sometimes supplies the answer he has opted for, so the question can still be a valuable source of information.

However, I think such questions should be marked as closed on the KudoZ list (or highlighted in a different colour) so that it is obvious that they are closed. Also the information that "This question was closed without grading" should be more visible (perhaps in red or blue) so that nobody answers it by mistake, unless of course he intends to.

This problem has been raised a couple of times but I hope the Staff will notice it some day
