It wasn't that the answered question's wording was poor as such, just that it attacked the same problem from a very different angle, and so it contained none of the keywords I would have used when searching for the answer to my problem.
- Edit the original question to include my version of the question as well (so that the original answer isn't lost? (so "How do I X" becomes "How do I X OR How do I Y")
- Ask my version of the question, then self-answer with a link to that question
- Some other course of action?
- Do nothing
