Yesterday, I asked the following question on conjectured values of certain factorial rational zeta series. It was downvoted twice, and upvoted once.
I'm wondering where the downvotes have come from. In my eyes, it was a reasonable question to ask, and I had checked the literature on the subject. This question was a reference question in a sense, though it didn't have this tag.
- Are there things I could and should have done to improve this question?
- Is a question of this type (asking for conjectured closed forms of certain constants) generally appropriate for MSE?
