I've asked a question that included details that were meant to give context but helpful comments show were distracting instead. Shall the question be completely overhauled, removing the context of the comments, or deleted+reposted?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
Overhaul it. If the current question is hard to answer, anything that makes it easier to answer short of changing the meaning entirely should be done. Make sure your question edits don't invalidate any answers, that's all.
There's pretty much no use case for reposting. If you want to repost, the same thing can be aceived by editing/flagging for reopen/bountying/etc (depending on the situation)
The point of being able to edit your question is so that it can be improved and clarified, so that would seem to be the way to go.
Deleting and reposting seems unnecessary.
