Yesterday, I posted a question. The question was misunderstood.
"It was very confusing. What on Earth did you want?
It was a word-request question. I needed a word (or phrase, or expression) to name/describe the situation a development team was in. I received a couple of good answers (like this one, very on-point) and a lot of analysis (why are you in this situation) and advices (how to solve it). These were really great (e.g. this one), and I was grateful, but it was not the point of the question.
Since I'm still a "noob" in these matters of asking questions, I made a dozen edits trying to define the kind of answer I was looking for, with moderate success.
"Ok, so what?"
Today, I've woken up to the question being on hold for being "opinion based". I think there can be motives for it being closed, or migrated to https://english.stackexchange.com/ , but I'm confused why it was declared "opinion based", of all things.
I would also like some help or advice to improve it, if you think it can be made to be a valuable on-topic not-opinion-based question.
"Word-request are more of an english.SE think, aren't they?"
I didn't post it in https://english.stackexchange.com/ because I felt that it required knowledge of the specific field, and sice I saw a "development-methodology" tag, I thought that asking the name of this kind of situation would be on-topic. If the mods think I made a mistake here, I would be ok with the question being migrated.
I also want to apologize to all the people my question misled, who made great answers and/or comments, but weren't what I was looking for.
EDIT: It has been suggested that this may be a duplicate of On the troubles of naming and terminology . I think that question is related and contains valuable information, but I think my question is different because it asks for a re-evaluation of a specific case aswell as asking for help to make the question understood (I don't think my question deserve two separate meta questions). I may be wrong.
