Should syntax error questions be closed as too localized after being answered?
Should questions where a problem arose from a typo be closed?
Are questions solved by fixing a typo or basic syntax error “too localized”?
Scenario: A user is coding (and is a newbie) and got stuck on an error which is because of a syntax error for example:
$sql = 'SELECT * FROM dealer WHERE id="'$id.'"';
and then user just ask question: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_VARIABLE sql query.
now what the problem with type of question is that
- they are too localized, since it's not possible (possibility is <<<<<<<) that somebody else is facing the same problem in which they forget to put
.at same place.
- these are not constructive since languages have error reporting. We just need little attention to understand it and solve it.
- And the worst seen is that there are 50*14 questions there with above point I mentioned.
Now my question is: should I (and is it appropriate) to vote to close and delete these question?
