I am currently doing a reading on Teichmuller space and I am having trouble understanding some basic definitions. So I asked these two questions on MSE first:
They have received some upvotes so they are at least not bad questions. The fact that it hasn't been a day since I posted them might make me seem a little too thirsty for answers, but the thing is, while I was reading Riemann surfaces as a preparation for Teichmuller spaces (like a month ago), I have asked even simpler questions, yet those questions have not received a single answer. Judging from the views they've received, I think I have a pretty good reason to believe my new questions are going to end up just like the old ones. And I don't want to waste any more time waiting for nothing.
Based on that, I would like to know whether it is appropriate to ask these questions (more generally speaking, questions that are not of the form of research questions, but belong to a research-level topic) on this site. Thanks!
