Yet another request for a magic link. In the following situations:

  1. I answer a question, the asker replies to me in a comment, and I want to reply to them asking them to edit certain information into the question
  2. The asker adds extra information as an answer instead of an edit

I want to give the user a link to [edit] the question, not the current answer I'm commenting on.

Can we have a magic link like [edit/question] (or [edit/q]) that:

  • becomes the word edit
  • is a link to the parent question of the answer the comment is posted to?

I find myself wishing I had this link about as much as I use the link to [edit] the current question.
