This meta-questions is about the balance that should be found between info in the questions. In order to address the question, I use a concrete recent example of mine.
Specific Question: Is there a way to improve this question to make it more readable/appealing?
Already in the past I wrote a rather long question (where I put a considerable bounty), and it did not really get any audience, or interest. In the end, after I also wrote a meta-question (now deleted) asking a question fairly similar to the one I am asking now, a user came up with an amazing answer, but I have the feeling that in that occasion I somewhat got lucky in getting an answer.
Interestingly, in that meta-question I did not recive any concrete advice to improve my questions (that one in particular as well). Still, I have the feeling that in general my questions (the linked one here is a specific example), when not completely idiotic (unfortunately it happens), have a lot of information, which could maybe force readers to just get away. Still, if I don’t add those info, I don’t see how I can signal that I actually worked on the question.
Thus, the problem is:
GENERAL QUESTION: what is the right amount of info we should put in a question to let people be interested, and show that we actually worked on it?
[I think that the reputation of a user (in various forms) can be relevant here]
Any feedback as always most welcome.
Thank you for your time.
