I recently submitted an MSO discussion question. In very short order it has been downvoted to the point where it appears on the rogues gallery of downvoted questions (i.e. the last page of questions sorted by votes, with 50 per page). It also has by far the worst net-votes-to-total-views rating of all questions on that last page, which could be worst of all questions. Finally, although I can't see up/down vote totals for other questions with my rep, the fact that the question only has one upvote probably puts it in the running for worst up/down vote ratio amongst high net-downvoted questions.
While there are a few questions on the last page that might cause me to view my membership there as a badge of honor (e.g. Should we have a policy about "too much downvoting"?), I would, if possible, like to "improve the question". After all, that's how the system is supposed to work, right? I know I shouldn't radically change the question as that would violate SE's rules of integrity, but wanted to get your thoughts on the reasonableness of any of the following:
- Change the title to fit MSO's convention of highlighting the key change under discussion rather than the twisted form of maintaining the status quo that is there now (ironically done in an attempt to avoid controversy)
- Remove the update about "agreement voting" not being allowed for discussion questions on the grounds that people don't like being lectured to, particularly from a relative newcomer and particularly about something that's been accepted practice for a long time
- Add an update which summarizes all the reasons why the embedded idea was a bad one
- Include a link to the popular Encouraging people to explain downvotes to emphasize that I've read that post as part of my research
- Leave the question alone and let it die, on the grounds that any more modifications at this point would be viewed as pandering and would be considered unwelcome
