This question asks if there's going to be a 7th Star Wars film. The asker heard it was going to be made, and seems to be asking for confirmation. The question received many downvotes, and was closed.

Why was it closed?

    I wasn't one of the close-voters, but I would have marked it as a dupe of Plans for more sequels to Star Wars?

  • Maybe because the OP didn't bother to try and Google the information? Oct 24, 2013 at 15:20

    @JackBNimble When we got rid of 'General Reference', 'you didn't google this' ceased to be a valid close reason.

    The answer's in the question, that turns it into a statement. The FAQ also says "Facts easily found on a reference site" are off-topic; that sounds like "you didn't Google this" to me. Oct 24, 2013 at 15:26

    @MatthewRead Looks like we need to update the FAQ there. That's from when we had General Reference/Too Localized.

  • I wasn't sure what to do here when I saw it on hold, because it really is a dupe, as @phantom42 said. Surely I don't vote to reopen to then vote to close as a dupe? Even though the close reason isn't really right?

  • @TonyMeyer & phantom42 Can one of you post an answer that basically says 'this should be closed as a dupe'? I can mark that as answer and take care of fixing the question's close reason myself.

  • IIRC, I VTCed, or considered to doso, as "Real life, not SciFi related" - mostly, because it seemed like a troll. But upon reading this Q, I think I was wrong to VTC for that. Good catch. Oct 25, 2013 at 9:12

While there is no longer a general reference/too localized close reason, the question is a dupe of Plans for more sequels to Star Wars? .
