I feel Kortuk misunderstands what too localized means. A question that is too localized is a question that will have no benefit for others. For example : I connected this and that in a certain why, what's wrong here? is a type of question that is too localized since it's very unlikely another user will have done the same. This is unless it has value otherwise and allows us to explain a concept.
Asking "What kind of certifications are needed in Korea" is not too localized, despite the fact that it's about Korea, because:
1) SE is an international forum. The issue relates to a complete country and note a specific situation (many people may experience this). Closing it is a clear sign of bias towards NA which I disagree with
2) Other people with the same question can come at SE, look at the answer and be satisfied. Given that other people are likely to have the same question, answering it is in the spirit of this site and what people expect.
Closing questions needs to meet a very high bar. You need almost unanimous consent, and for bad questions you can clearly see that this exists. However, when there are doubts about this I clearly see it needs to go the other way.
@Kortuk: When you say: "I do find it frustrating when people think that closing a question for a country is showing we are just a site for US, what about the EU questions we have open" exactly shows the bias that exists. Leaving a few questions open for EU doesn't negate that other geographies are not represented.
If we're not OK with people repeating the question (which I can agree on that), then we need some wiki that people can easily find and will have that answer.
