I've been in your situation a few times. Somebody posts an answer and it either doesn't quite have enough detail for practical use, or I'm doing something whacky that they haven't accounted for. We have two options in situations like this: Editing the original answer. Few people will mind if you improve their answer if you don't deviate too far. Adding ...

This site is about asking questions and receiving answers; Each of the two have their own space to live in; there should be no question containing an answer nor an answer containing a question. That's why Braiam removed your edit; your edit put informations deserveful to be contained in an answer in the question. That's not good because both the question and ...

This is my analysis, which is based on my knowing how the site runs/operates. Note that since I helped close your question, this is my justifications. The community is free to cast reopen votes if they disagree with the action, as we defer to the community consensus. Note that in response to your question "Am I being punished", the answer is "No, this isn'...

Braiam kicked off the process (as he describes below). That got it into the review process. What followed was an assumption that it was abandoned. The OT-Bug reason isn't explicit about the exact problem —a failure in itself— so where not obviously a development issue, I'd certainly expect somebody to clarify their reasoning. Closing might be helpful to us, ...

Artur Meinild commented I believe questions about running Bitcoin software on Ubuntu is as much on-topic as questions about running any other software on Ubuntu. But questions about the inner workings of Bitcoin and blockchain technology - not so much. I agree with this comment. Questions about using third party software on Ubuntu are on topic. Of course! ...

So... my honest opinion... this new feature of review where people can leave canned "feedback" as Community♦ is the worst feature ever. It encourages reviewers to treat the task as something completely meaningless and throwaway. There is no accountability - one can't straightforwardly tell who decided to leave the comment (it's possible by digging ...

As for the first link I can explain you why it got a down-vote, you will get the clue to when you look at this posts edit history. At the time I edited it first it was already down-voted, and my guess is because the question was a mess to read, totally without formatting. Still a legit question, but some people react on first impression and move on leaving ...

Partial answers that are missing tiny bits are still answers, as their core solution still says they used cron. The only thing missing from this to make it a great answer is how to implement it in cron. However, just because that tiny bit is missing from the OP's post, doesn't mean the entire thing is not an answer. They do mention they used cron in their ...

I've left a comment explaining my position of what you should do to solve your issue. Ask Ubuntu is not designed to solve/report bugs. I wasn't the only user that through that it was a bug, 2 other users agreed and two others through you already didn't have the behavior (though no evidence of such is given). I see that unless I'm commenting on all questions ...
