Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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 just converted Box2D library for C++ to a local project (changed all the include statements for the preprocessor). I saw many people were struggling with the problem to compile Box2D. So I found a for-every-one-friendly solution, but I want to share it with the community.

So the question is where can I share such things? Stack Overflow is a site to ask programming questions. And not to say something to help others... Very important is that it will be indexed (fast) by Google, so people can find my solution.

This question will probably end up getting migrated to From the FAQ "It's also perfectly fine to ask and answer your own question, but pretend you're on Jeopardy: phrase it in the form of a question." So can you do that? – Martin Smith Jun 25 '10 at 8:03
Ah actually this is a general question isn't it. Not about SO. I'd suggest maybe writing an article for codeproject. – Martin Smith Jun 25 '10 at 8:11
box2d is open source. Open an issue on their site, mail them a patch, ask on their mailing list? – Noufal Ibrahim Jun 25 '10 at 11:21

There is no general answer; it depends on the particular community.

In the case of Box2D, write a post on the forums; particularly, in the Build Issues subforum. If it is something that will benefit many people, you can ask a moderator to make the topic sticky, so it'll always appear at the top of the list.

Active forums and wikis are usually picked up by Google pretty fast (in a matter of days, if not hours).
