I've been struggling with unnecessary blank pages at the beginning of appendices. There are a few answers that speak to my problem, none of which have worked. I was pleased to find another person who was in the exact same predicament as I am, who asked this question. Then I was disappointed to see that the question was closed as 'too localized':
This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet.
I would guess that the close-voters were assuming that this question was 'extraordinarily narrow' in scope. At first glance, it would seem that way. However, given that I am in the exact same situation as the OP, it no longer seems so narrowly applicable.
What should I do? Ask the same question again? Somehow suggest to reopen it?
