I started to create a post on the regular stackoverflow site regarding creating extensions for a StringBuilder. Basically, the original code I had written was in VB.NET and I needed to port it to C#. Well, while I was writing up the post, I figured it out on my own. Can I place this code on stackoverflow for all to use? If the answer is yes, should I create it as a 'community wiki' post?

Here is a link to the question I posted. Does this suit the bill? (sorry I want to make sure I do this right!)

Yes, you can do that as long as it's not asked/answered already. You should post the question and then answer it yourself.

No need for Community Wiki.

So just post a "Here is a useful extension for StringBuilders" 'question'? –  Anders Aug 13 '09 at 14:57
    
The main rule is that you phrase the post as a question, then post the code in the answer. "How do I make an extension that does ___ in string builder?", then post the answer below. –  Ian Elliott Aug 13 '09 at 14:58
    
I added a recomendation, post your question and then answer it with the solution –  Juan Manuel Formoso Aug 13 '09 at 14:58
    
Ok, thank you guys. –  Anders Aug 13 '09 at 14:58

What you should do is first write a question.

How do I port some VB.NET code to C#?

Your question here

Then post an answer to that question.

Make sure that you don't make the question or answer too specific to your problem, otherwise it may not be helpful to others..
