Why is my question closed? How do I re-open it?

Gawd. Read the faq. You're off to a roaring start; one deleted answer (not an answer, should have been a comment, forum behavior, etc) and two deleted questions (off topic, don't-ask-this-type-of-question question). –  Won't Apr 5 '11 at 17:51
    
Gee - this is a perfectly valid question which has not been answered! I just had a question closed - I edited it, but despite reading multiple FAQ cannot figure out how/who/if it can be re-opened! –  Jeni Sep 20 '12 at 9:19

Did you mean this question? If so it was closed as being too broad or unanswerable for this community.

For further information on closed questions see this, this, and this.

From the faq:

Avoid asking subjective questions where every answer is equally valid: “What’s your favorite __?”

Stack Overflow is not a product recommendation engine. In a year, or even months, the question and answers would be outdated. This makes the question, technically, "Too localized":

  • Too localized: "This question would only be 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."
