I have a question about my Mathematics Stack Exchange post: Trying to prove a proposition about the nth order derivative of a polynomial by induction - is this correct?
I tried to add the proof-verification tag to my post linked above, but every time I try to add it in an edit, nothing happens. I even tried to add it by editing other parts of the post simultaneously, but those parts just ended up changing without the tags remaining the same.
I'm not sure if this is a bug or something, but it is a bit frustrating. I did put a bounty on the post before trying to add the proof-verification tag, which brought me down to just a reputation of 1, but as far as I'm aware, there isn't any privileges related to editing your own post, so I don't think that's the issue.
Now, my other question is concerned with how my post has performed overall.
It's been having trouble getting much attention, despite having a decent amount of views and upvotes, as well as a bounty. I apologize if this seems rude or entitled of me to ask, but I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on how to improve my posts in the future so that they don't go unanswered like this? Of course if I'm just being impatient, then I apologize- I haven't posted on MSE before, and I'm not too familiar with how long it typically takes to get answers to your question.
It's the third last out of all 68 of them. Just a few hours ago, it was at the very bottom, although I didn't have the foresight to take a screenshot. Again, I'm really sorry if this comes across as me just whining and complaining about people not looking at my post, it's really not my intention- I just would really like to know where I can improve for future posts, that's all.
Is there something about the way I've written the post, or the subject matter, that's severely hurting its long-term popularity? I did very recently change a large portion of it after realizing that it's not typically appreciated when posts contain a lot of preamble/introductions, and thinking over how much of it was unnecessary information contributing to its length. Perhaps that will help and my inquiry here is going to be met with what I already realized and acted upon with that edit, but I think it's still a good idea to get confirmation from some more knowledgeable community members.
