I'm a noob on this website and a couple of days ago I asked my first question (http://freelancing.stackexchange.com/questions/3500/how-much-does-a-beginner-freelance-copywriter-charge-per-word-on-averageHow does a freelance copywriter determine the right price-per-word to charge?), which got put on hold by a mod and today closed.
I understand there are rules to follow, but after the mod left a comment I wrote another one myself asking clarification on how I should have asked the question in order to respect the rules and I didn't get any answer. After that I left another comment asking why my question wasn't allowed while there were other similar questions that didn't get banned, still no answer.
I understand this can be seen as a useless polemic but an answer would have been useful anyways in order to better understand how this site works, but I never got any response and I couldn't find a way to send a private message, which I understand isn't an option when it comes to user-to-user interaction but having the possibility to ask for clarification regarding the way this site works would be nice (I know there is meta for that, but I doubt this place is for question like "why did my question got closed?").
