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

Possible Duplicates:
Is it poor etiquette to answer your own question?
Should I answer my own question, or not?

Curious as to what the protocol is here for when you want to answer your own question.

Say for example I post a question with code illustrating the question. I later on come up with a solution. Now, even with the "improved" code, it could be better.

Is it taboo to answer your own question?

Or is it better to add the "second version" of the code to the original question?
Append, prepend?

Or should I delete the original question, and post a new one with the code I came up with?

Other thoughts?

Answering your own question isnt taboo.. I think there is even a badge for it (i.e. Self-Learner) – Locutus Mar 19 '10 at 14:01
