I have a question about my credit limit and score, which has an answer for the US side of things (and a related but different question). I am in the UK, an credit score considerations might be different here for all I know.

If I were to ask, would it be closed as a duplicate, or is it reasonable to ask?

I am interested in the specific answer here of course; but also the general case where things might be similar-but-different between regions.

Localized questions are fine. In fact, for many questions here, we encourage a country code. With no country specified, the answer will often be US-centric.

Your question should not be closed as a duplicate, unless of course, a member finds it's been answered specific to UK.

  • Thanks for the clarification- elsewhere I've seen the approach "If it has the same answer/solution it's a duplicate (even if the reasons are slightly different)", so this is useful to know. Hopefully I've done a reasonably good job of dupe-checking but we'll see :)

  • I'm ignorant of the rules for scoring in the UK, and making the assumption that it's not identical to US. Jul 11, 2018 at 14:37
