I have asked quite a few questions now on TeX.SX and got good answers for most of them. Which I would like to thank everyone how contributed to this.
However often I do adjust the answer (that I accepted) a little to fit my needs entirely. I would also like to share these revised answers to the community as to give at least a little bit back to all the support I have gotten.
To this end I have tried to include the final solution somehow. Today I have tried to do it by adding the finally used solution to the end of my question (Case 1) and another time I put the answer in the top of the question (Case 2). In both cases I try to link to the person that has lead to finding the answer as I am grateful for their help.
What is your take on this. Should I do this at all or would you consider it bad style? In principle I see three options:
- Leave the question as is and write a comment on the accepted answer (but there might not be enough space in there)
- Do as I did in Case 1
- Write an additional answer to the question detailing the changes made to the original answer (in this case I would still accept the answer that helped me the most to get to my final answer)
What I really would like is a feature that would allow me to reply to the accepted answer with the implemented solution. Basically an answer to an answer kind of thing. I think it would be good if this option could only be used by the original author of the question as to prevent the thread to get to cluttered. Also in the case of this question I believe a feature like this could have helped structuring the development of the solution a bit clearer. (I have not tried to see if anything like this has been discussed previously and just added it her as I felt that it fits the original question.)
