What should we do when a question would make a perfect wiki, but the author has a criteria too strict for one? Please forgive me if this question sounds stupid, I'm not quite sure how the community wiki thing works.
I think it's OK to edit the question to make it more general so long as it's within the (reasonable) spirit of the question.
It is OK to edit a question to make it more general. With the power of editing comes the power to take someone’s selfish, very specific question, and edit it a little bit until they’re asking the more general question that hundreds of people encounter. For example, if someone asks, “I set up a web server at home but I can’t access it from work,” it’s OK to rewrite the question as, “What things should I check when a web server running at home is not visible on the Internet?” In fact, sometimes selfish, stupid questions of the “do my homework” variety can be easily edited into a form where the answer will provide an extremely valuable resource for the internet at large.
