I have an idea that part of the way we might improve Server Fault a little bit is to take questions that just are not that great but maybe have potential and edit them.
I think if when users with enough rep reach for the downvote button, maybe if we edit them into better questions that will have a little more depth to them it might help out some of frustration with some of the not-so-great questions.
People often do this in their answers anyways. Because the person is struggling a little to ask the question anyways we answer the question .. and then some.
I know some people are very worried about stepping on the authors toes or changing their intent. However it the question might get closed you are helping them, and I believe they can always just edit it back (hope I am not mistaken about that). So I say, if you feel like it, go for it.... Thoughts?
