I worked on an algorithm as part of my research back when I was doing a thesis and am curious how it would be received by the programming community at large (I already know how it was received academically). Also, in the same question, I'd like to see differing opinions/options to solving the same problem I attempted to solve.
I know the "can I ask my own question and answer" dilemma has been visited before, but this is a bit different as I'm acknowledging right away that there's more than one way to do it, while also attempting to get feedback/thoughts on my current approach.
If I asked a question about the general domain (in this case hierarchical pathfinding), and provided my own technique as an answer in addition to hoping for other differing techniques as answers, is this permissible? I've already done lots of background research on the topic in the traditional channels, but I'm curious to see how this would work out in the Stack Overflow setting.
