comment Keyboard on new 13" Apple MacBook Air acting strange after OS X 10.9 Developer Preview 7 update
The NVRAM reset seemed to have worked. I took it in to the Apple store to check for water damage (it's really humid in Georgia right now) and the guy said it was in pristine condition inside. I'm tentatively optimistic.

If you've decided something on Meta, then that information should be provided in the Help information as well. It's infuriating to be quoted the superuser.com/help page as the "reason" why my question is off-topic when it doesn't actually say anything about the "reason" my question is off-topic.

And you probably should go close this question: superuser.com/questions/610157/…

The other potential problem is that I don't actually know why my keyboard stopped working. Google searches have completely failed me and it seems to point towards a hardware issue (water in the device), but since I haven't spilled anything on my brand new laptop, I ruled that out. Even if something becomes outdated quickly doesn't mean that it's not a problem now and I think these questions should be allowed. And EVEN if you, as a community, decide that it shouldn't be allowed, for the love of God, make those reasons clear in the help pages that you quote as the reason.

And why in the heck would you encourage anyone to split off into tiny little niche communities? That is poor form in general. If you'll notice from my submission history, I don't have problems very often, but I'm somehow expected to sort through a poorly organized stack exchange site listing to determine that my computer problem of indeterminate origin is somehow only on topic in a specific subset of a community group rather than in the general purpose computer problem community? That seems arbitrary and asinine.

But either way, the specific page that you linked as your reasoning does not make any mention of this question being off topic. In fact, it appears to be very much on topic.

Yeah, @nerdwaller, then in that case, please re-open this question. The help page you linked specifically says that my question is on topic. It's about hardware, software and is not specifically excluded in the list of topics that are not allowed. The page you linked doesn't even include the word "beta". This "hold" is over-reaching, according to the rules.

Also, on Meta.Superuser it seems like this sort of thing was allowed, assuming it was appropriately tagged. meta.superuser.com/questions/3447/…

The rules for the sites on the Stack Exchange network are retarded. How is anyone supposed to be expected to keep track of this kind of nonsense? No offense to you guys, but I don't often have computer problems so when I come into something that I can't figure out, I thought I'd post it here and see if anyone else could give it a shot. If the site "Super User" is not the right place for this sort of question, perhaps we should rename the site "Normal User" or something along those lines.

Thanks, this worked perfectly. For posterity, everyone should be aware that you need to purchase the Professional license. I bought the standard version first and it didn't have the right functionality. :( Other than that, everything worked perfectly.
