    $\begingroup$ Great. Way to create a paradox. The puzzle no longer has too many answers, but were it to be reopened, it would have too many answers. Internal conflict, commence! $\endgroup$ – Ian MacDonald Dec 11 '15 at 18:47

    $\begingroup$ Hahahha - Marco would vote to re-open this post! Then it would be wrong and we'd have to close it because there's no possible solution. $\endgroup$ – bgmCoder Jan 29 '16 at 17:35

The answer is

[on hold], or eventually [closed]

because

the title is shortly going to read "The answer to this puzzle is… [on hold]"

The anwser is

too broad

Because a puzzle satisfying any/all of the hints will lead to:

a close request with the tick on "too broad"

    $\begingroup$ Somewhat along those lines, but focus on the "completeness" part of the puzzle. What has to be completed? $\endgroup$ – MathET Dec 11 '15 at 16:46
  • $\begingroup$ It would be great if you could answer that before my question actually gets closed :) $\endgroup$ – MathET Dec 11 '15 at 16:47
  • $\begingroup$ @Ivan: What has to be completed is the closing itself, isn't it? $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Dec 11 '15 at 16:54
  • $\begingroup$ Because of technical reasons, the ellipsis were being displayed incorrectly, now things should make sense (I guess) $\endgroup$ – MathET Dec 11 '15 at 16:56

  • $\begingroup$ I overlooked this solution while making that last one clue, well done! But not what I intended $\endgroup$ – MathET Dec 11 '15 at 17:09

The answer is

An ellipsis (...)

This puzzle is too vague

An ellipsis can be used to describe something vaguely

This puzzle is still incomplete

An ellipsis can indicate that a field on a webpage contains more text (is incomplete)

There is not enough information to determine the answer

An ellipsis indicates a lack of information

When this puzzle is complete the answer will read as clear as day

The puzzle is already complete, and the answer is there in the title, as clear as day.
