I recently wrote this question and almost immediately received two downvotes on the question, without any explanation as to why.
I added a comment, asking for clarification, but yet nobody has responded. I'll assume that the downvotes were justified, but it is not immediately apparent to me how this question could be improved. I tried to format it to the best of my ability, I researched the topic beforehand but could not find any clear answers aside from "I think ... but I'm not sure", etc.
Please note that I'm not trying to complain about my question being downvoted. I'm trying to learn how to write a better question.
