This is my first time posting at RotLD, hope I understand the rooms purpose.
Yesterday I saw this question in the Close Votes Queue: askubuntu.com/questions/1364112/…
The reason for closing this question was claimed to be "needs to be more focused". There was also a complaint that there was more than one question. The question seems very clear to me, the OP wants to run a Frugal install of Ubuntu on a Windows machine similar to What WUBI used to do. The second (part of the) question was if doing this could damage the SSD. This is a two part question and not two separate questions.
The OP may be a little chatty but is not unfocused.
The question has a simple answer that I provided.
@Zanna please comment if you have the time.

Is this post in the right place?

@C.S.Cameron yes :)
@C.S.Cameron I am a bit surprised the question seems clear to you hahaha but I'll try to edit it into shape

@Zanna Well WUBI was a pretty convenient way to test and install Ubuntu using the computer's full RAM and other capabilities, It was similar to a UNetbootin Frugal install. I understood that both methods could mess up the Windows bootloader. Thank you for editing the question, I'm sure that if I tried I would just make it worse.
 
@C.S.Cameron Sometimes close voters are influenced (triggered) by certain words the OP uses. In this case, I think that "Somewhat unrelated..." drove them to the conclusion that the question was needing more focus.
@Zanna Very nice edit!
 
@BeastOfCaerbannog thanks! :D
 
Yes, thank you Zanna.
I have never noticed the "Only one question allowed" before. I hope it is not strictly enforced. It would really mess up the coherency if the OP had to ask a two part question in two separate posts.

@C.S.Cameron I don't think those questions are really separate... if there are multiple questions that it doesn't make sense to address in a single post, then it's better that they be separated for easier searching. But here, the OP's concerns are related. You would want to know if you can do x and also whether you should given certain conditions

@Zanna I totally agree, it would make little sense to send in two questions. It could be awkward to explain what the second question was about.
Personally I think all the rules should be listed in AU Help, so people are not tempted to make them up as they go along. It's more professional that way.
 
@C.S.Cameron probably this page needs some work
