Many times I would "Close Vote" a question for being too localized, for example

"oops, I forgot to put a semi-colon at the end of a line"

These questions are unlikely to help anyone else, is another pathway available now to get rid of them?

    It was removed because the SO staff decided to remove it. Stupid decision.

    Off topic doesn't cover it. This question for example is a well explained question that is totally on topic, however the solution was he forgot to add [ and ] around the parameter. Normally I would close this as "Too localised" but now it doesn't fit any close reason. So it is a useless question that will never help anyone but will remain open. Maybe the Obsolete tag would fix it. Jun 26, 2013 at 0:42

    @Hiroto I can't find any reason in the off topic section for questions about typos or small mistakes (In SO).
