Description

It would be a great help to simplify the process of moderating / responding to questions on the AskLO site if some sort of link/button could be added to place the question into a NEEDINFO-type status e.g., bugzilla.

I have edited the Ask/Getting_Started wiki page to include a Key Details section. This still requires posting a comment beneath the question that contains this type of information:

Please note the [key detail](https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Ask/Getting_Started#Key_Detail) required for questions. To help us help you please edit the question accordingly. Thanks.

Currently, beneath each new question there are the following links:

edit | retag | flag offensive | close | delete

A "needinfo" link could be included to activate a highlighted pop-up/over notification with the requisite default response, or even better, the "How to use the Ask site" link, currently in the sidebar, or some sub-section thereof like that indicated above.

Obviously the less clicking and the simpler we can make this process, the better.

Yes, indeed.

Hmmm...perhaps this functionality could be added as a more generalized tool. To avoid hijacking this bug too much, I'll file that separately as issue #690.

Un-assigning myself.

Perhaps Evgeny has an idea of how much work this would be ? :-)

Something that needs to be developed. Evgeny will send me some pricing details on that so we can consider it for the budget.
