I do not believe this question deserved to be closed as too localized. The question is a valid question and by no means too localized.

The OP has again posted the same question an hour back here and it has received couple of answers.

Also, as discussed here, in general, I believe that moderators should wait for at least couple of votes to close a question from non-moderator users before closing a question.

It was requested to be closed by the OP. "Too localized" was just the least objectionable. It was then subsequently asked again.

I will delete the original now.

  • $\begingroup$ Ok. I did not find any comment by the user asking to close the question and hence the question. Thanks. $\endgroup$ – user17762 Nov 24 '12 at 20:48
  • $\begingroup$ @Marvis: It was flagged, so there was no comment. $\endgroup$ – robjohn Nov 24 '12 at 20:57

    $\begingroup$ @robjohn: I think that it is best to leave a comment "Closed after the request of the OP", or something. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Nov 24 '12 at 21:28
  • $\begingroup$ @AsafKaragila: true. I will do that (but not on this one since I would have to undelete and reopen to add the comment). $\endgroup$ – robjohn Nov 24 '12 at 22:40
  • $\begingroup$ Just undelete actually... and obviously not on this one. Although you can always edit the deleted question without it bumping to the top of the front page. :-) $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Nov 24 '12 at 22:47
  • $\begingroup$ @AsafKaragila: I am a bit annoyed that the OP had me close the question only so that they could repost it. I don't want to inadvertently bump the post. $\endgroup$ – robjohn Nov 24 '12 at 22:53
  • $\begingroup$ But... editing a deleted question won't bump it. That's the point I was trying to make in the second part of the comment. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Nov 24 '12 at 22:53
  • $\begingroup$ @AsafKaragila: I know, but it is deleted. I have added a banner so that it stays deleted. $\endgroup$ – robjohn Nov 24 '12 at 23:00
  • $\begingroup$ @robjohn Yes. It is weird that the OP decided to repost the question. $\endgroup$ – user17762 Nov 25 '12 at 4:05
