The too localized question suffers from a bit of misuse due to a somewhat unclear description. "In New York" or "In the UK" wouldn't count as too localized, nor would most easily recognizable geographical names.
As Joel Spolsky likes to phrase it:
Classic example of too localized: "Why is there a Green Honda Civic parked on my block right now?" Or, "Has the latest version of OS-X shipped yet?"
In this case, the too localized parts of these questions are:
- "on my block right now"
- "latest version ... shipped yet"
Trying to detect a too localized question the same way too subjective questions are detected (keyword matching) would be difficult, if not impossible.
