No idea. This is a perfectly good question, and should by any reasonable standards have a positive score. The community has just got this one wrong. I've upvoted the question and done some copy editing; hopefully that may encourage a few more upvotes Update: actually, it probably won't get any more upvotes. Because the post has such a low score, it's ...

I think it's a perfectly fine question. As the answers have shown, it's not something which is trivially answered from the rule book. I don't understand why it received down votes, although I'm happy to note that it now has a positive score. One potential improvement I'd suggest is to specify which rules you care about; there are non-trivial differences ...

Your answer has two parts: Alright, I know for a fact now that it's really against the rules as @PhillipKendall correctly stated. This simply acknowledges someone else's answer as being correct without adding new information. An upvote would be preferred. The thing is that on international level, the setters occasionally do leave their position early ...

Personally, I'd be tempted to just let it be. I'm not that bothered that a question which hasn't particularly attracted positive interest from the community is pointing to a slightly wrong duplicate, particularly when the current target is definitely a better question than the potential new target. If there's a strong community feeling that we should ...

I'll talk with Ivo to see if he feels it match on F&N..

This was my question. Now that you brought it up - it looks like there is a question on F&N that would be suitable to merge mine with: https://fitness.stackexchange.com/q/115 Unfortunately, there is no way (that I can see) to merge a question from one site with another. If there is, please let me know (I'm new to the SE sites and being a mod). ...

I think the question should be re-opened. While the answer is tangentially related to the answer in the other question, the questions are very different and focus on very different things. There's no reason not to have the two questions separately. The linked question asks why, in a specific example of a review, sometimes the review appears to show that ...

It's obviously been opened again, and I'm certainly not capable of casting close votes, but I would suggest one reason that's been left out of the discussion: Too broad includes the reason "Good answers would be too long for this format". When I read that question, it certainly sounds interesting to me, but it seems to me that it's more of a master's ...

I think you're being a little bit unfair here. The question itself does say What about a field goal attempt? While the main thrust of the question is about kickoffs, field goals are mentioned as well. Now then, that's not a good Stack Exchange question as it's actually two questions, but there most definitely is a mention of field goals in there. I'll ...

I agree. The question was perfectly clear, if one has any awareness of what the words involved mean in that context. If one doesn't have such awareness, they should seek clarification, or better, explore the context themselves. This would make them more able to handle similar questions or other questions in the same context later, and perhaps even find the ...

That question was closed because we are not your research assistant. The fact of the matter is that we are not here to do this kind of research for you. We are here to provide you answers to questions you have about sports, either playing in them, watching them, the rules, and sometimes some trivia surrounding them. Sports broadcasting is even on topic. ...
