I recently asked about Project management software, and someone changed it? Why is the edit better than the original Question?

update: I've changed the Question to be more specific.

I was trying to incorporate the actual question into the body (like Steven D said), and trying to make it less subjective; "What is the most advanced project management FLOSS?" is entirely opinion-based

  • I think it can be objective in that most advanced == has more features. I don't get what's subjective about that.

    @Tshepang I'm pretty sure "most features" and "most advanced" aren't synonymous Jan 2, 2011 at 22:06
  • Actually that's all I meant. What's the difference?

    @Tshepang One really useful feature makes a product more advanced than a dozen totally useless features. Anyway, it's your question; if you don't like the reworded version go ahead and edit it Jan 2, 2011 at 22:44
  • I guess 'has more features' is also subjective. Depends on how you specify single feature you may get different results (for example "Writes to standard graphical formats (PNG/JPEG/GIF)" vs. "Writes to PNG"/"Writes to JPEG"/"Writes to GIF"). Jan 3, 2011 at 14:12

I think that the editor was trying to ensure that the body of the question was a complete question, without the title.

Personally, I would have edited it a little differently, since I don't like questions that can be answered with a "yes" or a "no" when in fact the asker (I assume) wants a specific recommendation.

    I agree, questions that look for simple "yes" or "no" answers are a bad fit. Share experiences, details, and examples. Jan 3, 2011 at 1:14
