As of several weeks ago, questions closed as off-topic on skeptics.SE display a banner indicating that they are off-topic but without any information on exactly which custom off-topic close reason the close-voters used. For example, this question currently has the banner:
Unlike the banners displayed for most of the site's history, this does not indicate the exact type of off-topicness. Was it closed for not being a notable claim? For being related to a rapidly changing event? One of the other reasons? Without knowledge of what is wrong, potential editors will not be able to edit the question into shape.
Going by this post on meta.academia.SE, it appears that the change in banners corresponds to a new ability for site moderators to customize the text that is shown in the banners for each close reason. I assume that skeptics.SE is currently showing default banners due to custom banner text not having been configured yet. If this is so, could a moderator please configure the banner texts so that users can get proper information on closure reasons? If this is not the reason for the decline in banner quality, what is?
