I'm genuinely interested in my questions; so the present statuses sadden me. How could I improve them? Could I please request some help with editing my questions to improve them? I heartily permit anyone to do so constructively. I exemplify just 3 'turbulent' questions:
1. I might've forgotten, but initially Why would staff officers carry swords during combat, in World War II? was downvoted to -2? Fortunately, the score reversed, but no edits caused this upturn.
Why close votes? Looks like an interesting question to me. ?
3. Why was https://history.stackexchange.com/q/20917/8309 closed as 'unclear what you're asking'? The top paragraph contains my questions; the quote serves only as a context.
If my rudimentary English is to blame, I ask for your forgiveness and apologise.
