It's unclear to me why my question was closed as being "too local", since in part because the roll-over for an upvote states:
"[the question] was of use and was clear"
and two users upvoted the question; meaning three people including myself believed the question to be of use. How many visitors must a question be of use to be not labeled "too local" - and how is this determined?
For ease of reference, the default description of "too local" is:
This question is unlikely to ever 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.
Since the reason for the question being closed has been changed from "too local" to "off-topic", I'm updating the question. As Zuly states, she's asked a related question:
Though that question I believe assumes it's understood why "market research" questions are being closed, and her question is asking if they should now be allowed. That said, as an asker of such a question it is unclear why market research questions are being closed. At first I misunderstood her question as an attempt to address why the question was closed, though it's now clear that her question is about if the question should be allowed. I'm not attempting to be argumentative, tricky, or for that matter lazy -- I just do not follow beyond "that's just the way it is" why my question was closed.
Meaning per the OnStartups FAQs, my question is on a topic that allowed (that being marketing), and is practical, answerable questions based on actual problems faced by me. While I agree the question might not clearly be phrased as one for a startup, it is for a startup, and don't believe that there's any information in the question that would exclude the question from applying to a startup.
Why was my question closed?
