I'm interested in finding a solution to this question for the non trivial cases. When the OP first wrote the question, it included the possibility of trivial cases, and as such the answers received merely pointed that out. In the comments, the OP then said that s/he would like to ignore the trivial cases, but did not edit the question.
If I am interested in having this question answered, what should I do? Possible options are to
- Ask a new question, better explaining the problem
- Edit the original question, perhaps adding a bounty
In general, what is the best practice in situations like this - where a question has been asked and not adequately answered. If, say, one does not one to put a bounty on the question, is it acceptable to re-ask the question?
