I asked this question a few days ago which was recently closed:
I have now heavily edited it, in an attempt to make it more on-topic than it was before.
But is it just a waiting game to see if I'm making the right edits?
Since the question has lost a lot of "hotness" it doesn't seem to attract any attention from people who are able (and willing) to leave evaluative and guiding advice as to whether the question is being edited in the right direction or not.
I read How do you reopen a closed question?. It has a point called "How can one draw attention to their closed questions?" but it isn't really answered. It basically just says you should look for guidance in the comments, and alternatively the close reason:
Attention on closed questions
If the comments are helpful as to why the question has been closed, you can edit the post so that it fits the site topic or remove the points of offense if so marked. The close reason, while not always accurate, should point you in the right direction of what to fix.
I double-checked the comments to see if there was any pointer as to what I should do to improve it, since it seemed obvious to several people that it should be closed. This is based on the fact that a few of them were saying that "you can have a chat in chat" and "for this [...] we have a pretty [beautiful] search engine google.co[m]".
I understand perfectly that discussions are a no-go, and that you should do research before asking a question, but I don't understand how my question was indicating these things.
So what can you do to get your question evaluated? Can you do nothing but wait or ask questions like these?
It should go without saying that I've read the FAQ (plus How to ask and Writing the perfect question) through several times, so I doubt that I will get a better understanding of how questions should be formed by reading it once more. As a defence, I would say it's nice to be as proactive (e.g. reading how to theoretically do things) as possible, but I don't think it's possible to learn completely without getting your hands burned a few times yourself.
