# How to make question clear to users who voted to close without providing feedback as to what is not clear to them?

This question Permutations to the nines is "on hold" listing the reason as "unclear what you're asking".

Asked the first two users listed as voting to close what part of the question is not clear to them, to which no reply has been posted.

Am considering re-asking the question, though before doing so am seeking clarification here as to what part of the question could use improvement.

How to make question clear to users who voted to close without providing feedback as to what is not clear to them?

Putting @username in a comment doesn't always notify the user. I'm not sure of the exact list of behaviours which make a user available to be pinged like that, but empirically it doesn't include casting a close vote, because I was not notified of your comment.
