I saw that my 30 month old question: Converting from SLD to Carto CSS? was put on hold with the reason as 'off-topic'
Firstly I just do not see how this question is off-topic. It is a question about GIS software, and is asking a narrow, to the point question.
I can see that Iant has commented:
I'm voting to close this question as there is no solution to this problem
Is this some kind of new policy? Are we going to just close questions which are unanswered? What benefit will we derive from doing so?
In my opinion this was a valid question, and 6 others felt that it was useful and clear. So why exactly was it put on hold as off-topic?
