I am newer to the EE.SE community, and frustrated by interactions with my recent question. I'd like to get a better sense of expected downvoting criteria here.
A trivial question - Fine - But given my limited academic knowledge of circuits, when my answers differ from textbook solutions, I assume that I'm misunderstanding key concepts.
I explicitly detail my solution and state the correct solution, but my schematic contained a single error. The given answer, provided shortly after posting, references only the (incorrect) schematic, despite all calculations to the contrary. So, I quickly edited the schematic to redress the discrepancy; I couldn't use the earlier revision because it contained the mismatch.
Perhaps an oversight, but as the given answer made no use of the (incorrect) value in answering my stated question, I did not immediately notify its OP of my edit. Shortly thereafter, another user called his attention to the mismatched schematic and calculations - the OP downvoted and left a perturbed comment that I should make clear the schematic was edited. I did - I'm grateful for the help but frustrated that I was not given any benefit of doubt.
In my opinion, I've made every good faith effort to salvage my post. The answer's OP did not downvote until, it seems, they were "embarrassed" by the edit. They had every chance to address the discrepancy (made visible by all calculations, the correct solution, and comments). To me, they cast their vote on pride, not content. Even after I noted the edit, they have not changed their vote or the single digit in their answer that reflects the edit (though I still don't believe it answers the question).
Moving forward, how can I improve my post?
Is downvoting for a corrected error really warranted? I realize users have voting discretion (and I respect that) but it seems the downvote was cast for reasons other than content. Is that justified here? I'm interested to hear the communities consensus.
