I've looked around Meta for an answer about how to get more info on someone else's closed question, but haven't been able to find it. If there's a thread already, my apologies.
I have a question about the British usage of the term "gone" before a time (e.g. "gone midnight"). I found this thread which was closed for lack of context, I believe.
I don't think my question would meet with the same objections; I have done and will cite research, and my question is not an English-learner question--I'm a native (American) English speaker with a question about British usage that I haven't been able to find a good answer to elsewhere. My question could have been answered in the older thread, but wasn't.
Is it OK to post my similar question? If not, should/can I edit the original question, or is there another way to ask for more information there? I'm very new, and don't have a sense for the etiquette of (and privilege levels required for) editing other people's stuff yet, either.
