I tend to answer a lot of Payday: The Heist questions, so when this one popped up on the main page I noticed it pretty quickly. I voted to close it as not a real question, but the person's problem bugged me enough that I kept thinking about it afterward, and decided to take a stab at what I thought the problem might be.
My answer gathered a couple upvotes (and got accepted) but the question itself was downvoted and closed, in part because of me. I helped the person, yes, but something about the circumstances seems wrong.
Is it appropriate to post a best guess answer to a "not a real question"?
