Critique requests have been off-topic on Writers for some time now. Today, I was looking at this site's help pages and came across this:

This is not the right site for questions about:

Thanks for sending us questions about writing, that's great! But could someone please edit this page so it no longer directs critique requests to our site?

  • I'm sure we can manage that. Perhaps if you could give us a brief recommendation of what you guys would prefer it say? – Catija Sep 18 '15 at 3:38
  • Yes I agree that the 'see Writing part' should be removed, but what else should we put there? We need to recommend them an alternative way to make sure they won't hit us. – M.A.R. Sep 18 '15 at 5:17

    @inɒzɘmɒЯ.A.M Why remove "see writers"? Why not simply remove "critique requests"? – Catija Sep 18 '15 at 6:01
  • @Cat we occasionally do get writing advice questions. We should have something in the help center to point to when they ask why we close their question as writing advice. – M.A.R. Sep 18 '15 at 10:25
  • @Catija Maybe remove "critique requests" from this statement? You could break it out into its own statement. – Goodbye Stack Exchange Sep 18 '15 at 11:25
  • Hmm, that could work too. – M.A.R. Sep 18 '15 at 14:20

Absolutely, I'd be happy to make that change for you. Can you please leave a comment with the description you'd like us to give for appropriate Writers questions?

  • How about simply changing the above to: "This is not the right site for questions about: Writing advice - see writers.stackexchange.com instead" – Goodbye Stack Exchange Sep 19 '15 at 6:11
