I asked a question yesterday that was about an issue I'm currently dealing with. I was going to apply the advice of some of the answers to the situation. For better or for worse, it's turned out that the problem might be moot, but I was planning to try to write up the results of whatever solutions I used, because it could help future users who might have similar situations.
In cases like this, where the asker of a question tries out advice and finds some sort of a result, how should they share this with the rest of the community? I have some ideas:
- In comments below an answer, if they took the advice mainly from one answer.
- In a self-answer, if the approach was different enough.
- In a short edited section in the question body.
There are more options out there, I'd assume, but these are the three that come to my mind. Better ones would certainly be appreciated.
