A question of mine has been claused as “not a real question”. It was in fact too broad, so I have rewritten it to make it better answerable. What now? The FAQ says that it will be reopened if five people do vote so, but I fear a qestion marked as closed and having received negative votes will never ever receive enaugh attraction to be reopened. Or am I wrong?
This question is not addressed by the FAQ by now. In the section “Why are some questions closed?”, there is a link at the end of the “not a real question” point, For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ, but that link is pointing back to the section “Why are some questions closed?” only.
I would like to talk about here:
- Does it need feedback to those who closed down a question if much of it was rewritten? And what would mean „much“ then? If this is already the case, shouldn’t it be mentioned in the article?
- Or does the negative vote needs to be forgotten automatically then?
- Is asking to rewrite a question at all a good idea? The comments will turn less understandable if the question has changed. Would it be better to ask the people to write a completely new question?
