How do I run a downloaded Pokemon Fire Red Save File?

This question was initially closed as unclear. It has been edited, and it's probably about illegal emulation; even if it is not, it is a good example.

If a question changes reason to be closed, should it be reopened ?

If it is closed for whatever reason, it's closed. Reopening it just to close it with another reason doesn't make sense.

You're either:

  • Making extra work for a mod to reopen and then close it with whatever reason you think it actually needs or
  • You need 5 people to vote to reopen and then 5 new people to vote to close. Which is a lot of overhead for something that ultimately doesn't really matter in any real sense.

Leave a comment to point it out, if you really feel the wrong close reason has been applied. But if you just want it to stay closed with a different label, reopening it isn't really helpful, and you can possibly reach a point where a question that should be closed remains open for longer than it should just because the reason was being changed.

  • That's what I thought. Thanks!
