I failed a reopen audit. To be specific, reopen queue #2326624. The question appears to have been closed as "Too Localized". That may not have been the right reason to close it, but I still shouldn't fail because of that.

How's "evidence of attempting to solve the problem himself" relevant? The lack of prior research is a reason to downvote a question, not close it. – Yannis Jun 17 '13 at 4:21
@Yannis my mistake. reworded. – Cole Johnson Jun 17 '13 at 4:35
@Yannis In the OP's defense, questions that just paste a homework/quiz question from another source, tend to get closed as NARQ on SO. This is a general policy. – AsheeshR Jun 17 '13 at 4:36
I don't understand you rollback. You could just edit the link text instead of rollback. – hims056 Jun 17 '13 at 4:36
@hims056 Because "To be specific, reopen queue" doesn't sound right. It's also bad practice to say "To be specific, this one". – Cole Johnson Jun 17 '13 at 4:38

That may not have been the right reason to close it, but I still shouldn't fail because of that.

Well then. You agree the reason stated for why it was closed was incorrect... And haven't volunteered any other reason why it should've been closed... So...

You don't think you should fail an audit for failing to re-open a question that shouldn't have been closed, while reviewing posts in the queue that exists for the express purpose of re-opening questions that shouldn't have been closed?

I suggest you do not use this queue then.

Did you not read @AsheeshR's comment above? It is NARQ. It's policy – Cole Johnson Jun 22 '13 at 18:55
Seems like a bit of a stretch, @Cole - I've seen a lot of copy-pasted homework questions, and while this could certainly have been derived from such a thing it doesn't read like a verbatim copy to me. FWIW, we're currently discussing more strict (and explicit) rules for this sort of thing here:… - feel free to chime in. – Shog9 Jun 22 '13 at 19:17
