From time to time we get questions that are really not appropriate for our format, which often ask for a specific layout. Recent example: How to get this format in latex? Here it is entirely unclear what the OP is struggling with, besides achieving this very layout. Such questions tend to be too localized, but friendly as we are, we try to talk the respective OP into improving their question, splitting it up, reducing it, adding an MWE, whatever might be necessary.
My question is: Should we answer these questions while they're still in a state that's not really appropriate for tex.sx, so that they actually ought to be closed?
