So I just asked my first question here on Workplace, which by the way I specifically mentioned on the question body. It turns out the majority of the people who saw the question resorted to giving or upvoting snarky comments or outright voting to close. Apparently one person decided to downvote the question even..
I feel it's a pity, since I put quite a bit of time and work into formulating the question. Tried to be very specific with what I am asking, alas the question was put on-hold on the basis of being too broad.
I am confident that the question is relevant and should be improved to the point where it can be re-opened. More specifically:
The question isn't about whether or not I am willing to take the risks, but rather how to minimize the risks involved
The question is essentially asking for important parameters that are worth checking. It may sound like it to some, but I wasn't asking "OMG, what should I do?"
There are two relevant and useful answers, demonstrating that the question is indeed answerable. There might be more people with useful insights out there...
I will try to edit the question eventually to attempt to improve, but I figured I'll ask here on Meta if there are any constructive feedback about what should be improved/edited.
Note: This question has been re-opened.
