Here is the post in question: Chord has every note of the harmonic minor scale. Name?
Transcript of events that have occured:
Maika Sakuranomiya: What is the name of the first chord in these bars? I see an extremely strange type of chord in the first bar of the attachment below. This is the beginning of the fourth movement of Beethoven's 9th Symphony. It has all of the notes of the D harmonic minor scale: D-E-F-G-A-B♭-C♯-D, with F as the bass. What is the name of this chord? Is it an III+13 in D minor, which is Fmaj13♯5?
User45266: (Changes title from What is the name of the first chord in these bars? to Chord has every note of the harmonic minor scale. Name?) Imagine users reading the former title of this question on, say, the Hot Network Questions list. Nobody would understand what the question was about (even our own users)! That's why I tried to make the title more specific. It draws more interest, and doesn't force people to click it to understand what the question is asking, which I try to avoid on this site unless there's a good reason.
Maika Sakuranomiya: Good point, User45266. I actually have kinda expected this question would end up in the Hot Network Questions List. But somehow it didn't for some reason. And it is closed as "off-topic."
User45266's edit seemed awesome because his / her edit looked like if my answer was going to end up as a Hot Network Question. However, it did not. Instead, my question received a downvote, and it was closed as "off topic":
"Questions about transcribing or finding a particular song, including identifying chords, notes, key and time signatures, or similar elements, are off-topic since they are rarely useful to future readers."
Note: My post in question is not completely based on analyzing chords. I didn't include additional information on the Meta question here because it was getting too long.
So, the question here is: Why did my question end up being off-topic while it appeared to become a viral post? Is there a way to fix this?
