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

Should credit for an idea in an SO question or answer be given by a link to the user's page or is a link to their question or answer enough since it will contain a link to their user page?

I'd say link directly to the source of the idea. If the idea stems from a question or answer, link to either the question or the answer. If the idea stems from some verbal discussion you had with the user, link to the user.
