As this is my first post on Puzzling Meta, I hope it is appropriate.
If you post a question on Puzzling, and someone posts an answer which is mostly, or almost completely correct, what would be the policy on giving assistance to better 'aligning' your answers together?
IMHO I believe that for a puzzle (depending on the question of course), the solution should help reveal not only the final answer, but also the creative links between the solution and the given problem/riddle.
For example in one of my earlier puzzling questions here, the answer I intended was glasses, since in part of the riddle I was referencing glass cups, as well as the glasses on your head/nose. The answer given was 'the glasses'. The issue here is that they are correct in the most part, however they did not notice how the use of 'glasses' being for both drink holders, as well as for vision improvement.
I am uncertain on how to properly 'align' our answer or reveal such connections with the answer as I think I would be unable to properly explain it in the comments since use of the answer would not be hidden with spoiler tags. The other alternative (I used at the time) was to edit their answer by adding my intended explanation behind the riddle and slightly improving/tweaking the solution.
So my question is, how should situations similar to this be handled? Should the OP just 'suck it up'? Should the answer be allowed to be mentioned in the comments? Should edits such as this be allowed?
