I recently got a downvote for a question. Now I know this happens constantly, even to people with lots of reputation that are used to asking questions. What I'm after is: Why do you think this one got downvoted? I don't really care on a personal level, or about this question in particular, but as I love a good answer, I'd like to ask as good questions as possible. Both for my self, but also for the benefit of the community.
Please comment on what would make this question better and more relevant for Stack Overflow. Language? Composition? Length?
