A question I original thought was decent, in retrospect, looks like a bad question. The downvotes and subsequent closure made it pretty clear. Since the community has found the question to be of little value, I'm tempted to delete it, but since I can't I am wondering what I can do to salvage it, and avoid similar blunders in the future.
Also, I'm not entirely sure why this was closed as opinion-based. I asked for
- A list existing alternative stopwatch like tools (if anything this sounds like it should be closed as OT - favorite tool...)
I think both of those have non-subjective answers that could be provided.
I could potentially change the question to something like "Here's my naive code. How can I do this in less lines?", but that'd be more of a code-golf question and possibly OT here. It would, however, match the existing answers better. Is substantially changing the question like that warranted in this case?
