I noticed this post today : How to make something happen every N seconds in game?
It was modified to a much more generic, and even a understandable question. However, I don't think it was the question the user was trying to ask. It's likely a question or two in the comments could have resulted in a quality question.
The clarification or at least a step closer to what the user was asking came up in the comments.
Also, before edits there was more information in the question that given further clarification was indeed valuable information for someone to provide an answer. While I do appreciate the moderator looking to make the question/answer worthwhile, it ignores the user's goal in trying to get an answer to his question.
If there doesn't exist already a moderation process that addresses this kind of thing, it'd be worthwhile to have one so that the ideal outcome is that the user gets his question answered or pointed to content on the site that already answers it.
Changing the question to something that doesn't fit the intended question, for whatever reason, results in a negative experience for that user.
