The question How to change country in Mac OS X? is asking how to find the Torrc for MacOS X and how to change the Torrc file to only have exit nodes from a specific country.

However, there are answers for both parts of this question:

Basically, this question has duplicates for both parts. So should it be closed as a duplicate or not? Also, is there a way to classify this question as a duplicate of both those questions?

  • I can answer this part, at least: "Also, is there a way to classify this question as a duplicate of both those questions?" – Yes, there is. Users who have a gold badge in one of the tags on the question (as well as site mods) can close the question as a duplicate singlehandedly; they can also edit the duplicates list on such a question to add links to other questions as well, and/or reorder the list of duplicates. See this MSE post for more info.

    Surely if has two parts, the question should simply be closed as Too Broad.

In my opinion the question needs a good answer on how to find the torrc in a macOS system. Currently the answer deals with Vidalia. This is not helpful for people, because Vidalia is not distributed anymore.

So if the question had a good general answer, I'd propose to close the other question as duplicate and so point it to the first question.

The question about exiting from a certain country is more a general question which only in part has something to do with macOS. So I would not touch it at the moment.

    Thanks for the input! After rethinking this, perhaps we don't have to do anything really because both of the answers to How to change country in Mac OS X? seems somewhat old so until a new answer comes, I don't think we should close the other question. So right now, I don't think anything has to be done really, but we should wait until a better answer appears.
