I would like to understand why the Community/Moderators close answers without any sort of feedback to the user.
I appreciate that not all answers are great or elaborated enough but sometimes these are quick answers to help people. I think that's better than nothing to be honest.
For example, my answer to this question was ranked negatively (fair enough - I responded from my phone during a meeting to help the user but I didn't elaborate enough). Today I log in to revisit my answer and not only I don't find my own answer but I find -100 rep because it has been closed (of course no reason from the Community). OK, the answer wasn't good but, I would have expected some feedback in the same way I see comments from moderators posted on some pretty bad questions/answers asking to elaborate further or improve.
My question here is: Can the Community/Moderators add a brief comment/reason for closure? I know we have some guidelines but we could add a link to the specific reason to assist the user in preventing the same behaviour in the future.
