I based my thesis on a published paper and ask its original author if he was interested in seeing the results. After approaching him (with your help provided: How to address an author showing replicated results from his paper? ) he replied
Your application of the XXX method looks very good. Congratulations, and thank you for sharing your work.
and made some recommendations about the bibliography.
Now, should I end this conversation with a thank you or can I insist a little bit more and ask him if he thinks it can be published somewhere or even if he can suggest where could I publish. (It's a bachelor thesis so it's not something groundbreaking, it's more of a replication paper).
