Here's another "what's wrong with my question" meta-question, referring to this non-meta question.
Part One: I do not understand why I am getting downvotes continuously. Reasons that the tooltip on the down arrow shows and the ones I give downvotes for include:
The question shows no research effort, it is essentially "gimme teh codez". I don't think this is the case - I must admit, this is not a great question, but I googled it - and I couldn't find C sample code for the heck of it. As I explained it there, I also thought about the architecture of the program, but I didn't manage to implement it. (Maybe I should have included some C# code so that the post doesn't fit in the "questions asking for code must [...] include valid code sample" closure reason?)
The question is incomprehensible, and/or written in an unsalvageably bad English ("it's unclear"). Not that one either. I know, it wasn't a Shakespeare's play but it was comprehensible and I've even improved it recently. Furthermore, nobody edited it (I've had the grammar in my questions and answers fixed by native speakers before, so it's not that people don't edit).
It's not specific enough ("it's not useful"). Maybe this? Perhaps "I want to list the devices on the LAN" is too broad?
The question is off-topic. No, it's not off-topic.
The question is spam. Frankly, it isn't, is it.
So, what is so wrong with it and what could I do to improve it? I mean, there are way worse questions than this one with less downvotes and/or more upvotes. (And anyway, it's not about voting but about not polluting the site with bad content, ultimately.)
Part two: If it is really unsalvageable, what should I do? I wanted to delete it but I couldn't, since it has an accepted and upvoted answer. I've previously emailed the developer team for disassociating another heavily downvoted question of mine from my account, but I don't want to repeat it. I feel I would just spam their already-busy inbox with my minor (compared to other To-Dos on the SE network) problem and I wouldn't like to act foolish either.
Sorry, no unicorns for you today.
