I have asked "Why do famous CMSes uss string flags in the database instead of integers?" question here. After asking it (and receiving an answer) I realized that Database Administrators has
database-design tag and I have found this answer.
My question is currently +2 upvoted, but it also contains two close votes. And I wonder, if these are because someone just didn't like my question or maybe because I asked it in the wrong place and I should rather go to Database Designers with next questions of this kind?
