I asked a question which received one down vote with no explanation, and one frivolous, waste of time comment. It is a very important question for me, for something I am writing on deadline. I am thinking of deleting the question and posting a reframed version on ELU, where I am a regular participant. But I thought I would ask advice from those in the know on History SE first.
I asked the question here because it relates to the history of World War I. Is there anything wrong with the question? If so, please help me fix it. I noticed this site is in Beta. ELU is a well establish site with lots of participation. Might I do better there even though there is a historical aspect to the question, because perhaps History SE has a lower readership?
