I have a question about memory usage that was a little ill-informed on my part, and it turns out the issue is being caused by something else entirely. Before I add any more information I'm inclined to just forget this one and ask a new one.

Should I edit my current one or ask a new one?

This question already has a couple of answers, and is closed as "too broad". If you later understood that the issue is different enough to invalidate the current answers, I'd post a new question. Additionally, I'd mention the current question in the new one - "I recently asked about X and was helped by the answers I've got, but recently understood the problem is Y, so I'm posting a new question."

  • How does this co-exist with the fact that questions should be as "standalone" as possible (and not linked as a follow-up to another question)? – Pacerier May 3 '15 at 9:17
