I posted a question which now has an accepted solution. I would like to clean up / streamline the question and solution to make it more readable and accessible in the future for other people to benefit from the question. Is there some protocol to handling a question once it has been solved and I would like to improve the way it is presented / improve readability? What do you think is the best way to handle this?
To be more concrete (although this should just be considered as an example, I am interested in how to deal with this in general), consider Solutions to functional equation $f(x_1,x_2)+g(a_1t+x_1,a_2t+x_2)+h(b_1t+x_1,b_2t+x_2) = t^2$. There are a at least two things I am considering changing (1) the solution starts off with "I apologize in advance for any error(s) I may have made." I would like to remove this now. (2) the question includes my partial attempt at solving the problem. The actual solution incorporates my attempt at and hence overrides what I did (hence I'm not sure how beneficial it is to see my attempt). Should I remove it / leave it / move it to an unsuccessful solution? I would like to move my attempt to an unsuccessful solution, the reason being that it makes the question much easier to read and anyone who is interested in my attempt can then see it as an unsuccessful attempt.
Sometimes I will not read a a question because it is very long and it is unclear where the question ends and attempted solution begins (or even if there is an attempted solution). Maybe there should be a section called "attempted solution" so that others can see what you have done / where you are having difficulty. This makes more sense to me than just sticking everything into the question.
