I've been trying to ask a question on here and the question keeps on getting a ton of downvotes, but nobody bothers to tell me what's wrong with the question. Nor does it get any votes to close.
The question that you asked, and deleted, and then asked again, and then deleted again, is off-topic. It doesn't fit within the scope of the faq.
Perhaps, if you'd have left your question alone for more than a minute without deleting it, someone would have been able to respond with constructive criticism.
For anyone with enough rep to see deleted questions, this is one of the permutations of the question at hand:
Well one obvious answer to this is that the reason suggested by the tool-tip is what the down-voter means, and they don't want to add a pointless comment that simply restates what is obvious by how the site works.
I've said it before and I'll keep saying it as long as people keep asking this nonsense.
I feel absolutely no need to post a reason for a downvote as long as none is required for an upvote.
Have you ever asked anyone to explain an upvote? I would have thought that understanding upvotes would be more valuable than understanding downvotes. After all, they are worth a lot more.
