# Q&A asking for better A

I asked a question and provide an answer, also I asked for solution better than my own. Then my question been edited and my request for better solution than my own been removed. Was that a good edit, or should I revert it?

• Agreed. Also, a good way to think of this: it is reasonable for the question to state the metric by which you want answers to be evaluated (e.g., I want the most efficient algorithm -- that specifies the metric, namely the efficiency, e.g., the running time). It doesn't make sense to ask for an answer that's better than your existing answer, but it would be perfectly reasonable to ask for an algorithm with the best possible running time, or an algorithm with running time asymptotically better than $O(n^2)$. – D.W.
