I understand Stack Exchange follows the Q&A format. But how do I share great ideas that I stumble upon and think it maybe useful to others as well?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs

Formulate it as a question and an answer. Self-answering questions is allowed and encouraged.
There is a big "but" here though: Both the question and answer have to be good. That is, you can't get away with a lousy question just because you add an in-depth answer. Nor will a poor answer suffice if your question is great. All the usual rules for both questions and answers will still apply. In fact, the community (whether fair or not) tends to take a more firm stance on self-answered questions.
