Most of the criteria for closing questions (exact duplicates, non-questions etc.) are clear to me. Closing a question as being to localised is the one I don't think I understand. I suggested closing What could cause repeated NULL characters in an .aux file? in chat and in the comments Caramdir suggested that the question probably doesn't need to be closed. That's fine with me, but it raises the question of how do we decide this?
- So what criteria should we use to close a question as "too local"?
Perhaps a related question (and I know I'm not supposed to do this) is:
- What is the purpose of closing "too localised" questions in the first place?
