Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Sorry but I don't understand why was the following question closed by @casperOne. The question seems to explain perfectly what the user has tried and the problem he has encountered. You can't ask for a better description. He provided all the details allowing to reproduce the problem.

It's true that the initial question posted on Jun 19 at 12:53 was total crap and didn't make any sense and deserved closing. But the OP edited it on Jun 20 at 8:16 and the question seemed perfectly clear. He provided more than enough details.

I answered it on Jun 20 at 8:40 and the question was closed on Jun 20 at 13:10.

So I just wanted to ask what the community thinks about this and whether the question should be reopened or not. I've already expressed my opinion under the form of a reopen vote.

This question is unlikely to 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. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Looks like it's been reopened. – Adam Lear Jun 27 '12 at 17:21
BTW, wouldn't a flag asking to reopen the question have been much easier? Look at all this typing you made both of us do =) – casperOne Jun 27 '12 at 17:23
The title of this makes me laugh. – SomeKittens Jun 27 '12 at 17:38

The flag was basically too old (the user made an edit after the flag) and I didn't see the revision history. It's reopened.
