Would very much appreciate insight. Did I change the OP's meaning too much?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Basically, yes. It should probably have been a comment or perhaps even your own answer. – Bart Nov 9 '12 at 21:12
The OP is the person who asked the question. That isn't the post of the OP. As to the rejected edit; suggested edits are not meant to extend/change posts, but more to fix grammar/typos/formatting/etc. If you have something to add, just post a comment or an answer. – BalusC Nov 9 '12 at 21:13
Are there some general guidelines for when to edit vs comment? The majority of my edits are grammar, which is fine and useful, but when I see room to expand on an answer in a small way I would intuitively think it better to extend one that's almost there, than to create my own which may be largely redundant. Do you disagree? – yarian Nov 9 '12 at 21:15
If you feel that an answer is redundant (indeed; the OP didn't ask specifically for the "trick" you mentioned), just post a comment then. – BalusC Nov 9 '12 at 21:15
Okay, fair enough. – yarian Nov 9 '12 at 21:15
