On my question concerning how to control the PointSize of a dot on a plot in version 10 of Mathematica got two close votes for being "off topic". However, neither of the closers made a comment saying why they thought it was off topic, so I am wondering why they would have thought it was off topic. Did they think the question was too basic?


The close votes were cast for the following (standard form) reason:

This question cannot be answered without additional information. Questions on problems in code must describe the specific problem and include valid code to reproduce it. Any data used for programming examples should be embedded in the question or code to generate the (fake) data must be included.

Briefly looking at your original post I see that you used things like curve and point without defining them. Code examples should be self-contained when at all possible as otherwise answerers often have to first reconstruct your code before continuing.
