I first asked if a certain repair is fixable by a DIYer and described my level of experience. After getting 5 great answers involving intermediate-to-complex solutions, I thought of an alternate, simpler, second solution and added it to the comments below my question.
However, I think it's unlikely to get any answers to the second question now. The users who already posted the 5 answers likely won't update their answers, new solutions would address both questions. Picking the best answer including the second question deprives the prior 5 user solutions of getting whatever points or badges since it's essentially a new question.
So should I fork it, as in post a new question with just the second (simpler) question, and link the first, explaining the second new question is slightly different? Or leave it as-is?
Thanks for your help, I want to do the right thing here.
