Some questions where users are looking for scripts have very long feature sets that are very specific. I don't see how it would benefit anyone but the question-asker in their specific situation. Here is an example.

I am thinking that questions like this, when tagged , should be closed as too localized. Thoughts?

It depends how long the feature set is. If someone says "I want a CMS with a photo gallery and a forum" then we could either point them to such a thing, or http://cmsmatrix.org/.

However this particular feature set is quite long, with some quite specialised stuff, and I think it unlikely that anyone will know the answer off the top of their head and the questioner would be better off doing their own homework.

    There will definitely will be some subjectivity involved. Our 3000+ rep users will need to vote to close or leave comments to help flush these out.

  • +1 [I was the unexplained downvote; walked away while trying to come up with something that wouldn't sound like berating.] Those requested features went way into "do my research for me" territory. The standards(Joomla, WordPress, Drupal) could likely all handle this via their ecosystems, and a real response would require a long list naming specific plugins for the various feature implementations requested. In isolation some of those might be valid questions, but en masse like this, it becomes of extremely limited application for later visitors.
