Are hardware (port, cable, etc.) visual identification questions allowed or not? Specifically when it's basically just "What's this port?" and a picture.
- What is a name of this port? And for what purpose can it be used?
- What is the name of this laptop port?
- What is this port/connector on my laptop?
- What kind of connector is this?
- What is this small port on my laptop?
What are these "notches" on the side of the PCI Express connector?
I've looked at Are "Guessing Game" type questions allowed on SU?, and @Random's answer is:
These should be closed as "too localised", or in the cases where they only have just an image and want you to figure out what they're showing, "not a real question".
Neither of these are options to close anymore. :)
I also have seen Let’s Play The Guessing Game, but it doesn't really help clarify it for me, especially this many years later.
Should we flag as Close -> Other and put in a reason (as I did on the latest one, and a previous one) such as in the following?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is a "guessing-game" type question. See https://meta.superuser.com/a/6074/23133
Or are we allowing these now (one of the examples above was even protected by @nhinkle)?
In the past I've answered one or two of them myself, but since these questions aren't really searchable, are they useful enough to keep?
This is the only closed question of the same type/style I can (currently) find with some quick searching:
