There is no personal attack in my question. I am identifying two reals facts that show the eminent contributors' willingness to close questions without having taken the time to read the questions carefully and verify that it is really a duplicated question. And I can mention other facts.
This second question was proposed at the closing as being duplicated by another. However, this is not the case as shown by the 3 answers she received showing that this is a problem related to the
It was proposed to close these two questions 1 hour after they were asked!
- Isn't this speed in itself a problem?
- Isn't this a consequence of the inherent speed of computers and networks?
This kind of problem could very well be avoided if the eminent contributors waited a few days before proposing a question to the closure.
Taking the time once solved many problems. The current speed is posing a new problems:
- the problems are overflown
- and their difficulty escapes our attention.
Look at this question: Labeling points on a circle [duplicate] it was asked at 5:56 p. m. and is closed after one hour because of a duplicate question.
However, the OP explains that it cannot apply the answer codes: and for good reason, because the other question does not solve its problem at all.
A closer look at the question shows that this new contributor did not see the essential difference between the two questions: He uses the operation
\node to draw the regular polygon where the operation
\draw is used in the other question.
What is the point of closing questions after an hour simply because of the question without verifying that the solutions of the so-called duplicated question apply?
The same problem arose with this question: I want a figure to be positioned above a tikzpicture
It was asked at 4:57 am and a request for closure was asked in less than an hour. However, it was different because it was another problem due to the
I replied, then I added the
standalone tag and the closing request was removed.
- Why are the eminent contributors so eager to close questions without having taken the time to read them carefully?
- Couldn't we leave a response time of a few days before closing a question, since its reopening is a real difficulty?
- Shouldn't we change the closing rules and leave a few days of latency before we can close a question?
Can you reopen these question?
I ask for this question (Labeling points on a circle [duplicate] ) to be reopened because it makes it possible to clarify Tikz's various concepts and operations.
