I made a post called How to differentiate between elves and men where I asked about how to make elves physically different enough from mem that you could distinguish one from a man at a glance. I got a few answers that clearly understood what I was asking, yet it was put on hold for being unclear.
Why was there such a disconnect between the people that answered and the people that flagged the post? Just noting that nobody who actually discussed the post flagged it and 3 out of 4 of the people who answered understood the post exactly how I intended it to be understood. All but one of the people who discussed it understood what I was asking and none of the people who discussed it flagged it.
So why was this flagged? What could have caused half of the people to understand it clearly and half of the people to not understand what I was asking?
I would understand why none of them talked if there was another person who actually told me how it was unclear, but there wasn't. So now I'm being told I have a post that is hard to understand without being told why while also seeing that everyone who cared enough to comment understood mostly the way it was intended to be read.
All I am wanting to know is why so I can actually ask the question.
