I made a suggestion (which was rejected) for this answer but just because of that user "Last seen more than 3 years ago" (at the time of posting this question)

I know that it is bad idea to edit someone's answer here, but what if user they aren't active anymore? In this situation, I believe that the comment is useless and may be deleted in the future by the system or a moderator.

Should I post my answer with the almost the same code just with fewer bytes?

You should post your new answer and link to the original.

It perfectly fine, even when the OP is active, to post your golf as a separate answer. You don't need any further reason to do so.

A full answer can also give you the opportunity to explain your changes more completely, which can be nice.
