Recently I am humbled and had to acknowledge my mistake to make the question more attention-grabbing than is necessary, and deviating from the original claim, the latter of which I believe is significant and worthy of discussion.
It would be perfect if a question was immaculately asked to beging with. We know that it works with experienced Skeptics.SE users, but for novices like me mistakes are unavoidable.
Because of the site's high standard on the formulation of claims, I want to know if Skeptics.SE might benefit from having a more refined process for revising, modifying and closing a question than is implemented on other SE sites.
- Is it permissible to have attention-grabbing titles as long as the actual claim is stated in the first paragraph in the main question text?
- Are there any rules discerning whether a question title must be revised vs. closed? (In this case, my change will be invalidating the existing answer, which contains important reference links.)
- If the change in question title deserves a discussion on its own, how/where should the discission take place? Should a link to the chat room be posted on the question?
- Should we have Wikipedia-style block templates on questions that are being challenged, requires significant revisement, or being proposed to close?
