A while ago, I asked a question trying to find a high-quality, reliable translation for a particular work.
To date, no comments have been posted offering helpful insight as to why the question is below quality, while existing meta precedent says very explicitly that these questions are categorically on topic and of high quality. (That answer was at +9/-0, but it seems like some of the downvoters on my question also went out of their way to downvote that answer.) However, my question has been noticeably downvoted.
While it's certainly possible to write a poor-quality question in an area that is categorically on topic, I'm struggling to see what about my question led people to feel that way. It makes me curious, then - why has this question been downvoted? Is there some quality issue I'm not seeing?
