I see many questions which are downvoted and locked immediately, most of them from fairly new users. How about we give them a chance to re-frame the question or remove it themselves, rather than locking it down? Considering this is UX.se I feel we should be better than that.
I see a question along the same line on meta, So are we allowing subjective questions, or not?. I feel these questions should be re-framed to a pro vs con (or some suitable) structure and the discussions should be encouraged. UX is not about finding one answer, it is about reasoning. The one which I liked was the 'abusive names blacklisting' one, it was a nice debate from either sides and was quite a learning experience.
If you argue that these discussions can be taken over to chat, I call that a lie. Few people visit the chat, and on top of that there is no sense of continuity. Two people might be discussing the question when someone else jumps in and starts another discussion.

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
This is the prompt which goes on closed question and hence my 'confusion'. Anyhoo, I see that there is some work being done to improve that. I would just add the suggestion of changing the prompt ^ too, in addition to the move from closed -> hold and make it clear to the OP that he should revise the question if he so wishes.
How about we give them a chance to reframe the question or remove it themselvesThat's exactly what closing is, moreso the chance to reframe than remove it themselves though. The only thing is we don't want answers while they're reframing the question, otherwise you can end up with multiple answers referring different, past states of the question which makes it all just a mess.
