This question already has an answer here:

When is it reasonable/recommended to add another answer when I have already added one? My doubt comes from this question that I answered although I find later that the question was not complete. I found a way to solve the problem and was going to post it when I got the "add another answer" question.

So, should I post a new answer in this case or edit the somewhat faulty one? Better yet, when is it appropriate to post another answer?

If your edit is clarifying something in your existing answer, just edit that answer to update it.

If you have multiple independent solutions for the same problem, then post them as separate answers so they can be voted/accepted/discussed independently. One might be great, and the other might be stupid. Best not to lump them together, eh?
