Ever since I have been on the site (which is not very long at all) I have always wondered if it is okay to edit someone else's question after it has been closed if you think that you have the general idea (or can just edit the question to where it makes sense).
The reason why I ask is because I have seen several questions I thought were good, but they were closed as they were deemed either too opinion based or off topic or not very specific. Most of the time, if this were to be allowed, I would be actively editing some of the new users posts when they do not make much sense or need help. I have looked around on this site, but it seems no one has posed the question nor put forth an answer.
What I am looking for is: Is it okay to edit someone's post when it has been closed?
