Occasionally, in the 10k flag queue, one sees a self-answer that should really be an edit to the original question. For a while, I just re-flagged these as "not an answer" and moved on. But more recently, I thought that perhaps I should edit the question to include the answer's content, saving ♦ mods a step.
Today, I did so, and when I happened to look at the question again, I saw that not only had a ♦ mod deleted the answer, he or she had also edited the question, resulting in a duplication of content in the answer.
Obviously this was not a big deal, since I caught it -- I just re-edited the question. But I might not always catch this kind of thing, which makes me think that perhaps I shouldn't be editing questions in this case. Is there a one-click solution to this problem available to ♦ mods? Am I really saving them any work in these cases? If not, shouldn't I leave the editing to them, to avoid this kind of minor mishap?
