Do we need to close too specialized questions?
We have a bunch of questions that are very specialized for example we have 2 questions asking for academic references:
- Need a reputable source for the formula for the shape of Earth's horizon
- What exact algorithm and parameters reproduce L-system plant growth figure in Algorithmic Beauty of Plants
Both basically ask us to go and find a resource for them to figure out the answer. Obviously that then means the answer would be of very poor quality.
Then we have a bunch of driver bug questions:
- Code runs differently on different hardware
- How to make double working in OpenGL 4.1 on OS X ( Intel HD Graphics 5000 )?
Obviously its very hard to answer these questions without owning a system with exact specs and version of driver.
There are other types, even one posted by me. Do we need to consider closing some of these question types?
