A question I asked was put on hold. I have edited and instead am asking for guidance on how I can build a SAAS app. Does this question have scope to be taken off hold and attract some answers ? Or should I just re-ask the edited question ?

  • FWIW reopen reviewers appear to be not convinced by the edit – gnat Oct 24 '14 at 9:07

    As far as I can this, this system is very poor in providing the correct guidance on what questions are appropriate to ask here. StackOverflow is very clear. have code examples, don't just ask how-to without going through some level of research on your own. Very clear. This site seems to be about developer discussion that doesn't allow developer discussion. – Robert Beaubien Oct 25 '14 at 20:54

    @RobertBeaubien it was never about discussion. See On discussions and why they don't make good questions and the wording in the tour - "This site is all about getting answers. It's not a discussion forum. There's no chit-chat." There is a bit of history on P.SE when it started out allowing almost anything, and that was a problem. So we really try to constrain the discussions and questions that would be too broad allowing lots of poor answers. – user40980 Oct 26 '14 at 0:38

    The edit asks the same off-topic question with slightly better wording. – user22815 Oct 27 '14 at 14:42
  • @MichaelT FWIW question asked by unhappy commenter is actually of kind clearly covered in help center. Being active at SO, they could probably even recognize same kind that is off-topic over there, software recommendations – gnat Oct 28 '14 at 9:46

I do not believe it should be reopened because now it is far to broad of a topic to get a good answer.

Expand on each of these sub-questions you have and ask them separately and you might have better success.
