Could the off-topic section in Help include a link that showed some/all of the questions which have been put 'on hold' because they were deemed 'off topic'?

That would give new users a very quick view of what's off-topic, and we don't have to maintain or invent the list.

I think we should link the current thread for on vs off-topic to the help: on-topic page.

  • ...that's my plan. I was going to edit the on-topic page to have a list of the topics that are voted above-zero, off-topic list topics zero-and-below; both pages linked to the Q in meta. Aug 7, 2013 at 20:13
