I have a question about my Mathematics Stack Exchange post: What are the ways to analyze a random set of instances on a timeline?
Two weeks ago I asked this question to get help on the problem I have been working on for months. The question had zero answers so I put a bounty on it. A week had passed and I awarded the only answer with the bounty and accepted the answer. The answer was too vague to be real help for me but I wanted to reward the member's participation.
Today I revisited my question and to my surprise found that it was put on hold with the reason unclear what you're asking by Dominik, JonMark Perry, Shailesh, Jonas, user1551.
I did not ask my question out of curiousity or because I wanted attention. I am solving a real life problem. But since my question does not fall within the realm of conventional math class questions I am denied help altogether.
I have trade secrets to consider and I cannot go into much detail which might make my question sound broad. But why should my question be removed if a bunch of people cannot understand it?
