After asking this question about the disappearance of the "too localized" label, it was suggested by freiheit that we discuss whether or not those type of questions should be on or off topic.
The further description of/reason behind the old criteria was something to the effect of, "This question is only applicable to a small geographic area or a specific point in time and is not likely to help future visitors."
Examples of this would be: (I'm don't have time at the moment to find actual examples from the site, but we've all seen them. Feel free to edit them in if you know of one.)
- Where can I find x part in Smalltown, Wherever?
- Does x company currently manufacture y widget?
- I'm building a super-Frankenstein bike that will never be reproduced or used by another person and I need a magnetic o-ring to fit inbetween my two custom fabricated neck bolts. Where can I find one?
