I mainly contribute to ProWebmasters - Google changes all the time and I and notice a ton of questions that the correct answer to which is no longer relevant.
I come across a ton of very old "Related" questions and either the way we handle the problem has changed, the question is about something that is deprecated yet replaced, or there is no way to answer the question without asking a question.
What is the best policy here? I'm thinking it makes logical sense to edit the post saying something like:
Revised to include up-to-date information on the topic for users facing similar problems, rather than a verbatim answer
Otherwise, if I answer the question without a direct answer I risk comments saying "this doesn't answer the question".
As a noob, any/all advice is appreciated.
