Recently I have had a few questions either down voted or deleted based on being "out of scope" After a brief discussion with an administrator, he suggested to make suggestions to the author of the question on how to broaden the scope.
I come from an LDS background, and often questions that ask for "biblical backing" I interpret as "scriptural backing" and use other scripture to answer the question according to my beliefs. For that reason, I believe that I have had my answers down voted or deleted.
What is scope? In the question what does it mean my god my god why have you forsaken me There was no specific "biblical-basis" tag or anything, just an open question with a broad scope. I answered the question in scope, I answered it from an LDS perspective, noted that way and everything, and yet my answer was deleted.
So what is a legitimate answer within scope? I am not sure why that particular answer was "out of scope"
What is the best way to do encourage the author to change the scope?
