On my answer here to this question: is $0.\overline{99}$ the same as $\lim_{x \to 1} x$? (yes it is a bit old) I was downvoted by a moderator. I am trying to understand what is wrong with my answer. Since a moderator downvoted me, I am taking it seriously.

1. How can I best get feedback on my answer?
2. If that would be here, then I would appreciate any such feedback so that I can improve.

• @Asaf: Yes, mine was definitely lower than Robin, Akhil, Qiaochu. Tim Wagner was close: his reputation on Dec 10, 2010 was ~3900. Mine was ~2600. :-) (No SQL required. Just a hand-held tabulator.) – Willie Wong Dec 17 '12 at 13:09
