About a week ago I posted this question, which in hindsight is vague and over-broad, both for what I really want to know and for what can be reasonably answered in one question. The example is also bad as it doesn't actually fit the cases I am looking at. Luckily, I was awarded a badge for my mistake!
How should I go about converting my original question into a more specific one that can have a reasonable answer? My instinct was to ask a new, more specific question and then delete the old one.
