  • That suggested duplicate was self-answered, and no points made. Sep 4, 2018 at 20:49
  • It appears to be the same person asking both questions. Vassil, are you attempting to reopen your previous version of this question, or is this supposed to be a new variation that's distinct from the previous one?

  • @JeffSchaller Yes, I'm trying to reopen previous version of question. Suggested edits were made and it was still closed.
