A question that I asked on the main site was closed, despite following the rules as they are stated on the page about what's on-topic.
When I asked why, I was told that Rule Intent questions are not permitted, and this meta thread was cited.
When I asked why the page about what's on-topic has not been updated to reflect this decision, I was told that "[we do] not have easy control over the help page, so changing it, even after the community has agreed on something, is not trivial".
I think it's perfectly reasonable to not permit questions on X topic. But I think it's weird/interesting that such an important page cannot be edited.
Who owns this page, and why is it difficult to gain access to edit it accordingly?
