how to appeal a closed question?
I asked a multi-part question, one part of my question was a duplicate and the question was closed as a duplicate. I still want an answer for the non duplicate part. Also I feel this is a question other people will have as well and it would benefit them to have the answer.
I chose to re-edit my question and deleting the duplicate part from my question (which resulted in the question being re-opened) but I made a moderator/high rep user irate. What is the best course of action here? Also someone answered just the duplicate part of my question, I did not accept the answer because their answer did not address my main question. But the high rep user has a point that with the edit it makes the answer look not right.
Ask the non-duplicate part of the question as a new question (seems like the new question might be a duplicate with my old question)?
Delete the question and ask the non duplicate part as a new question (seems like it might cut down the rep on the user who answered)?
Edit the question to remove the duplicate part as I have done?
