I am here from last 3 years and getting great help from this community. But I have not much impact on this community. Always my questions are either down-voted or put on hold or deleted. Some due to valid reasons but not all.
Now this question: Import media image from XML file has been put on hold as off-topic but I don't think it is off topic. There are other questions related to this and has been well treated. And what I got from help center is:
Magento Stack Exchange is for users of and developers working with the Magento e-Commerce platform. Questions which involve custom code or extensions should include relevant code and, where applicable, an indication that the custom coder or extension vendor has been contacted for support.
I think, this particular question should not be closed. Please give your views.
