I posted this question which at first seemed related to the linked question though I was trying to complete a method. I then edited the question so that it serves that purpose yet it was still closed, and linked to a question which has not the answer. Can someone clarify why that occured?
Seems like it has been reopened now. I don't know about this specific case, but sometimes mistakes/misunderstandings happen (we all are human, hopefully :-)). If you think a question has been closed wrongfully, asking a question on meta (just like you did) is the right way to go.
(But don't use the support tag, use discussion instead).
