A couple of days ago I asked the question on main When conducting a study, what is standard practice with patterns you find along the way? and it was put on hold earlier this morning as 'too broad'.
I am requesting here hints on how to address this (and any other problems) so that people will vote to reopen.
Can anyone suggest what about it is so broad and how to reduce the broadness?
I realize it may not be clear (most questions on CV.SE are mathematical and so a statistical practice question may be a little vague). I think I can make the question more precise with an example. But I'm not sure exactly how the question is too broad. Are there just too many possible answers? Are there any other things I can do to make the question answerable?
