What's the most appropriate "vote to close" reason (or other moderation action) for https://stackoverflow.com/questions/5645461/webclient-request-dont-work-anymore-in-a-new-project?

This question showed up in a list of "answers:0 closed:0 webclient" search results I was using to find old unanswered questions. THis question will never be answered because the OP has answered his own question inside a revision of the question:


fixed the problem, it was my misstake, i gave the method the paramters in the wrong order :(

If the question itself would be helpful to future visitors, I'd simply copy the OP's "answer" to a real SO answer, as recommended here.

But this question has, IMHO, no use to any future viewers. So it seems like closing is a more appropriate action.

But none of the "vote to close" reasons seem to apply.

Any ideas what to do when running across questions like this?

But this question has, IMHO, no use to any future viewers.

In that case I would close it as too localized, which is made for that kind of situation:

This question is unlikely to ever 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.

    Of course, absent-minded me neglected to actually close it myself. Thanks Kev ;) Nov 26, 2011 at 17:18
