There seems to be several issues with some Stack Exchange sites. There is very low traffic in the sites, and question I ask are often deterred.
For one example, take a look at the https://math.stackexchange.com/ site. Every question that I have asked on that site has been closed and deleted. And I tried asking on https://math.meta.stackexchange.com. Even those questions were closed and deleted.
If you need another example, take a look at the https://cooking.stackexchange.com/ site. One question that I have asked has 1 answer, but it gets closed as needing details of clarity. I expand the question, and resubmit it to the reopen review queue. I also ask on meta. The question has remained unanswered for almost a month. And later the parent question gets deleted by the community. and I vote to undelete the question.
Last week I have set a bounty in one question question on the https://psychology.stackexchange.com/ site. I will copy and paste the question text here:
Twin studies were used in behavioral genetics research to understand the relative contributions of genetic and environmental factors to various traits and behaviors. IQ, or intelligence quotient is studied using twin designs.
Research using twin designs has consistently found IQ to be highly heritable, with estimates typically in the 50-80% range, depending on the specific population and the methods used. This suggests that genetic factors play an important role in determining individual differences in IQ. However, heritability estimation does not provide information about the specific genes involved or the mechanisms by which they contribute to IQ. One of the ethical concerns that I think apply to this type of study is the potential psychological harm that could result from discovering someone's twin later in life, especially if their life experiences had changed. Another ethical concern is the possible violation of privacy or confidentiality, as some twins or their adoptive families might not want to be contacted or identified by the researchers or the media. A third ethical concern is the potential bias or coercion that could affect participation or responses of the twins, as they might be driven to conform to certain expectations or stereotypes about twins or intelligence. These were some of the issues that I think should be considered when conducting or evaluating twin studies on IQ.
How can a researcher take into consideration the ethical concerns related to twin studies?

Note: Hopefully someone will answer this question before the bounty expires. If any improvement is required, I expect other users to suggest improvements, not to close the question.
One hour is left now. I hope someone will answer the question now.
This question has started with two upvotes, but after setting the bounty to the question, one of the mods has said to be more specific. I have made an edit after that. Then one of the users has asked me to add what ethical concerns I think apply here. Then I make more edits to the question. The current version of the question is quoted above. But the bounty has failed without any answer. So, I have deleted the question for now to deal with it later.
The overall issue is the traffic of these Stack Exchange sites. Since this site has higher traffic than the other sites, I have decided to ask for advice here. How do I deal with these low-traffic sites?
