We have a tag how-to-help which currently has 36 open questions (9 closed).
We also just added an official close reason for questions asking "What should I do?"
This seems to have a lot of potential for confusion: on one hand, users see the tag and assume that means it's on topic; on the other, close voters think "how do I help my friend/relative/etc" sounds an awful lot like "what should I do to help my friend/relative/etc".
What (if any) is the difference between the two? Should how-to-help be off-topic now? Or, if it should remain on-topic, how do you write a good question that doesn't have the same issues as a "What should I do?" question?
