This pertains to: How do I store data with a query that's approximated ?

I felt that the question as stated was too localized, and invited the OP to generalize because I thought there was a valid question lurking within. But that hasn't happened, and the ensuing discussion seems clearly out of scope. Any thoughts on how to proceed ?

The question sounds like it fits more within the scope of MetaOptimize.com/qa or stats.stackoverflow.com (which I cannot tell apart). Perhaps leave the question for a day or two to see whether it improves. If it doesn't then suggest to the author to repost on one of the above mentioned sites.

    $\begingroup$ I agree. If a question might be possible to fix, but OP does not react to comments within a day or two, then we can close the question. In general, I think it is very strange to post questions and not check within 24 hours if there are any comments or answers. $\endgroup$ May 12, 2011 at 17:54
