In some SO questions (and I'm sure SF/SU as well), you will come across a nice practice: The asker will update their question frequently to adapt it to the answers given and discussion occurred, making the question itself a valuable resource. Let me point to a question of my ownquestion of my own as an example. There are many, many others maintained with equal or more care, but I had great fun with this question and that kind of underlines my point.

  • The biggest down side I can see is that attention - and probably the better part of long-term upvotes - would be shifted from the answers (whose authors do the main work, and provide their knowledge) unjustly to the question and the asker.
