Etiquette for answering your own question

It just happened that my question didn't exist anymore (I found the answer) while writing it:

git website update strategy - how to sync dev and live repositories?

But I found the content so valuable that I posted it anyway.

Surely, it will add value to stackoverflow and other trying to resolve the same problem.

But, sadly, there was no question in the "question" anymore.

What should I have done? I don't have another proper place to publish that content...

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

As the FAQ says: It’s also perfectly fine to ask and answer your own question, as long as you pretend you’re on Jeopardy! – phrase it in the form of a question. – mmyers May 24 '11 at 15:40

1 Answer 1

Write the question as a question, and answer it with an answer.

Don't put the answer in the body of the question.
