Question modified into new question after being answered

I think you were right to think that he should have posted a new question. Indeed, if he had not deleted it, I would have rolled back his edit and advised him to post his new problem separately. I ...

Edit or post new meta question if again I need help for the same specific question?

There's a limit to how much help you're likely to get to improve a questiion. Your initial question here on meta was a good idea - your HAProxy question on the main site wasn't well received, so ...

Why was my question regarding software management in a corporate environment closed?

If I had been involved in closing this, it would have been for "unreasonable business information technology management practices". You know all those firewalls, proxies, etc that you were bemoaning? ...

How can I improve this question?

It's hard to tell how many servers you're talking about and how they're used: how many is "lots" of backup servers what do you mean by "slower unstable-online" ? what does "unlikely unavailable" mean?...

How can I improve this question?

I just read the question, and I don't understand what you are looking for. I was about to think that you mean backup server, to create a backup, but as I seen the tag haproxy so I guess it's for ...

Why is the question about multiple A records for a hostname closed?

The closed question is too broad because it is insufficiently precise to be answered within the guidelines in the help center. It is asking nine (count 'em, nine) separate questions. The excessive ...

Reopen Question 25K+ Views, appears to be a valid question, lots of answers

I agree that the close reason appears inappropriate. The fact that there's so many answers (none of which are complete) suggests the question isn't particularly clear, though. Also, as far as I can ...

Reopen Question 25K+ Views, appears to be a valid question, lots of answers

I was one of those who VTCed, and though I can't remember my choice of reason it's clear it wasn't "product recommendation". Here's what I think now. Firstly, it's a "please fix my iptables" ...

Why was my question regarding software management in a corporate environment closed?

I didn’t voted to close, but keep in mind Microsoft discourage the use of Insider’s build inside production environment. As such Insider build can’t be delivered by WSUS, and force a manual ...

How can I improve this question?

It's not a bad question. It's clear enough for people who know well haproxy and they could surely answer it. The concept is technically valid. The problem with the question: it's very hard to parse ...

Why a "Wow! That solved the problem!" answer gets down voted

I don't agree with your premise that the way people vote here vs. other SE sites is different (worse) than other sites. First of all, downvoting without a comment is totally fine on all SE sites. It'...

Why is the question about multiple A records for a hostname closed?

I think this is a borderline case, but the too-broad close was likely not about the many subquestions, but the fact that there might very well be significant differences how browsers handle this which ...

Reopen Question 25K+ Views, appears to be a valid question, lots of answers

Here's another of the close voters. I agree that the reason given seems weird - though it's unfortunately easy to click on the wrong the close vote reason and then you can't easily go back and fix it. ...

Reopen Question 25K+ Views, appears to be a valid question, lots of answers

What you can see from the question is who voted for closing the question. What you cannot see is which close reason each voter chose. The exception to that rule is that if a question is closed as off-...

Reopen Question 25K+ Views, appears to be a valid question, lots of answers

I think instead of re-opening that, I think it might be better to ask a more generic question asking 'what ports and protocols apt could potentially use during the updating process' with a sub-...

Does my tunneling question belong here or on SU?

At first look I don't see it off-topic, but I'am not a linux admin. I'am more on the dark side as a Windows's admin. To note 'how something work' is sometime closed as learning recommendation, ...
