Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I asked a question on SO. I got answered by a link to the h-site. I went there and the answer is actually somewhat good, an approach not typically used.

What's the policy on pasting that code here with attribution? Do we have any?

I skimmed through the member agreement and it seems to me that there is no express prohibition.

If you've got your problem solved elsewhere, copy the code/answer here, link to the source, and then in two days, mark it as the answer. We're building a canonical site of programming answers.

Bing, bang, boom.

Why not mark it right away? – John the Seagull Sep 5 '09 at 2:26
Because you can't accept your own answer within 48 hours. – random Sep 5 '09 at 2:33
random's right, but don't let that keep you from clicking it repeatedly and yelling, "Accept, you jerkwad, accept!" – Eric Sep 5 '09 at 2:34
Oh, I marked the link provider as the answer and edited the question with the content. – John the Seagull Sep 5 '09 at 2:41
