Continuing from Are image transcription requests on-topic? ("What does this image say?"), here is a diverse collection of image-transcription requests found throughout the site (click to see the original question).
Let's pretend these images were asked about today. Suppose the OP comes along and posts:
- a question with a fairly generic title (like "what does this say?" or "help me translate this into English?")
- one of the images above,
- a brief description of where it came from, and
- nothing else, and in particular, no attempt at identifying the character(s).
(Ignore whether or not they're currently closed; we've been very inconsistent.)
How on/off-topic are they?
(Oh, and note that while number 15 is Japanese, they're basically Chinese characters.)
