Today I flagged a question for not showing an adequate research effort, but then the question received a quite useful answer from another user. Being a newcomer to the stack model, I wanted to clarify what the best procedure is for this kind of circumstance.
I have read the guidelines re: Community Wikis, and come away with the feeling that this should be used for long, resource intensive lists rather than a multiple-answer question thread where many users contribute a colloquial version of their own or some clarification on nuance.
Given this information, my next guess would be that an intensive edit on the question would be on order. In fact, I have seen this done with this question.
Should this be the standard approach to this situation?
