As of right now, this question is worded is such a way it is too localized (I submitted an edit to try to be more general without changing the meaning, so it might be changed now).

I was looking in the FAQ, under "What kind of questions should I not ask here?", it doesn't say anything about questions are are too localized, but that is a reason we can flag a question. Can that criteria be added to the list?
