[META] About closed questions [Closed]
The Question has been closedby
I saw there are some questions which are closed because they are either duplicate or not a real one. So what are the other parameters/rules to close the question?
What does closed question mean? If question is closed, can anyone vote or answer for it?
This is just MPO but I think that yes, you should be able to both answer and vote for closed questions. The reason is simple, occasionally questions are closed by people who are a little bit too trigger happy. There are questions that may seem duplicates but which are not.
By upvoting a closed question (at least if you have verified that it is, indeed NOT a duplicate), you are indicating that you find the question relevant and deserving of attention. The same goes for answers. If you find the question to be unique and valid, go ahead and answer. At the end of the day, what really matters is that the collective wisdom of the community increases. If it does by upvoting and/or downvoting a good, relevant question, go right ahead.
