Today I posted a question, but judging by the comments, I believe it may be a little bit far-fetched or misleading. I didn't expect it to be very difficult, but planning to update it tomorrow or the day after. There is already one answer going in the right direction, so not sure whether to delete the question and repost it later or something else? What number is hidden in this gallery?

Best, Artur

 What I think you should do :

  • Keep your question, do not delete it
  • Update your question to correct it (as you have done)
  • Add a note at the end of your question to explain that the puzzle have been updated and what are the reasons
  • Comment on the previous answers to warn them that the puzzle has changed

The reasons you should not delete your post :

  • Some users have worked on it and they can be frustrated if their work desappear
  • Puzzles are edited all the time, it is very normal. It is even advised to edit your puzzle if it is too broad.

    $\begingroup$ Also, diamond mods can delete your reposts. Not everyone wants to see your thousands of deleted reposts, and some people can see them, so it's frustrating and vandalizing the whole site. $\endgroup$
