What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 142 Stack Exchange communities.

Here is the question: MESOS+HADOOP+SPARK: How to correctly setup?

If we look at FAQ definition of ontopic, this question belongs to at least two of fours:

  • a specific programming problem (MAYBE)
  • a software algorithm
  • software tools commonly used by programmers (YES)
  • practical, answerable problems that are unique to the programming profession (YES)

I think that this could be a too localized but anyways, we could give that question a chance, as it possibly could help future visitors.

Closed by casperOne which means it must be an incorrect close, amiright? High fives all around! –  random Jun 9 '12 at 18:58
It is closed as off topic, but it looks like a "too localized" to me. Somebody's made a mess out of their system, and wants help un-messing. The right answer is almost certainly to blow everything away and try again. –  Ernest Friedman-Hill Jun 9 '12 at 19:14
@MichaelPetrotta I took that as sarcasm aimed at the OP's "not the first time for casperOne" comment. You sure it's not inter-moderator play? –  Dave Newton Jun 9 '12 at 19:18
I don't really think so, @Dave, but I could be wrong. And I don't think the OP's a mod anywhere. –  Michael Petrotta Jun 9 '12 at 19:29
@MichaelPetrotta I thought you were referring to random's comment--obviously the OP isn't a mod... –  Dave Newton Jun 9 '12 at 19:36
Oh, yeah, I was talking about a comment in the original rev of the question. Random's comment is just random. He earned that name. –  Michael Petrotta Jun 9 '12 at 19:38
For the record: the original revision of this question contained the following sentence: P.S. That is not the first time, when @CasperOne closes the question that shouldn't be closed IMO. that's what random's comment is referring to. –  Pëkka Jun 9 '12 at 19:44

What's all the fuss about?

This question is six months old. In that time, it has not attracted a single answer. It's the very definition of too localized. Now, because of this meta question, it has attracted four reopen votes.

As of right now, it only needs one more delete vote though! –  Ernest Friedman-Hill Jun 9 '12 at 21:31
To be fair, it also was closed for 4 of those months. That's still two months open without an answer, but it's only 2, not 6. –  Nicol Bolas Jun 9 '12 at 21:58
@NicolBolas: If someone is really interested in posting an answer, they can always flag to reopen. I generally oblige if they can actually answer the question. –  Robert Harvey Jun 9 '12 at 22:00
