About a year ago, after reading the FAQs, I'd posted a question (link) here.
Apparently it wasn't a very good question because it got closed shortly thereafter. The reason was that it didn't "demonstrate reasonable business information technology management practices".
Well, In my own view it was a question with an interesting core and apparently other people found it helpful because of the useful answer and upvotes over time. This led me to believe it could be fixed to meet the question standards and add something to the list of good questions of this site.
So today, excited to improve a community, I flagged it in need of a moderator's attention explaining my situation:
This question was closed a long time ago, because "Questions should demonstrate reasonable business information technology management practices." I can't really identify with that reason, plus after all of those initial downvotes it has received upvotes over time and there is an interesting discussion and a +3 accepted answer on it. What else has to occur to make this a good question? – Maneating Koala
declined - votes and answers don't matter. You are trying to do something your tool is not designed to do, so I agree with the close votes.
This came with an additional -1 on my question. But of course I'm not so familiar on this SE site, and like the moderator specifies in his answer, I'm not supposed t use flags for that.
I just don't agree on that it's relevant whether someone thinks it should be closed because I'm using a tool wrong, instead of commenting on my question.
To sum up, I think I have a potential "good" question here, but I don't know if I'm totally misjudging this. If I'm not, does anyone have any tips how I can improve this question to make it go in the review queue?
