This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

The site FAQ ( would seem to be a more appropriate place to ask about the policies of another service. They'll be more authoritative and up to date than asking here. "Are non-Italian residents allowed to play on this site? No. This site is reserved exclusively for Italian residents/citizens who can provide a valid (fiscal code) and can provide proof of their identity, either with an Italian ID card, Italian driver’s license or Italian passport." – Robert Cartaino Jan 21 '12 at 23:13
@Robert Cartaino: it's only localized because, in this case, they don't allow players outside of .it. But there are other sites where this isn't the case. For example: Q: "who can play on" A: "anyone in europe" (it's just an example to make a point: an online site concerning a lot of europeans isn't too localized). If people keep downvoting and closing questions that have answers then the 4 questions / per on average, in freefall since the 2nd day the site went live, will keep freefalling and it's StackExchange Poker that can be closed... Just my $0.02 continuation bet ;) – TacticalCoder Jan 22 '12 at 12:30
@user988052 Leaving poor quality questions open in the hopes that they will draw interest is not the way to improve this site. Also, keep in mind that this is a private beta, so the site really hasn't gone "live" yet. – Beofett Jan 22 '12 at 23:01
@Beofett: my point was that this is not a poor question but a very legitimate question (with legal implications etc.) that is very common on big poker forums because a lot of players want to know the answer to this. And it's not "too localized": it does concern most players: it's not because, in this case, only italian players can play on that the answer is not interesting to a lot of players (especially seen the gigantic fish pond and the amazing money to be made on due to the very bad playing field). – TacticalCoder Jan 23 '12 at 0:38
@user988052: Don't get caught up in the close reason. "Too localized" because stating the policies of another website is only useful at that time. "General Reference" would be more applicable. If you want to know the policies of another website, it is better to than to ask here. – Robert Cartaino Jan 23 '12 at 15:06
