I just attempted to close this question as "too localized", only to discover that the option is no longer available. Where did that option go?

See The War of the Closes

“Off-Topic” now includes site-specific close reasons


These site-specific reasons will also address situations previously covered by “General Reference” and “Too Localized”. Those were the least used and most misused reasons – moderator and team sampling found a huge percentage of their application to be erroneous.

  • I wish there was a bit more exposure than just a blog post when infrastructural changes are made. We get lots of notices; why can't we get notices for system changes such as this one? Jun 29, 2013 at 22:24
  • @ChipBennett a lot of it would be uninteresting to most users I think, those who care just subscribe to the blog (those who really care stalk changelog on global meta)
