Quite a while ago, I suggested an edit to this question, to remove "[SOLVED]" from the title, and remove

EDIT: The answer was {x}

from the body. When trashgod reviewed my edit, (s)he approved it, but then put the "EDIT: answer was x" part back in.

It was my understanding that answers were not to be put in the question, they go... in the answers. But I wasn't about to try to override someone with 30k rep, when I'm sub-400.

  • Interestingly, the same answer was already posted by the asker as an answer. – Cody Gray Aug 15 '11 at 12:10
  • Yeah, the asker originally put all the info in the question, before being told to put it as an answer. But then they left the answer in the question as well! – Cam Jackson Aug 15 '11 at 12:21

    I wish that original edit was never allowed. Nothing worse than "SOLVED" in a question title. Skeeves me. – user1228 Aug 15 '11 at 13:01

In general, no. Maybe in some obscure edge-case combination of reasons - maybe it would make sense - but in the example given it looks like a simple "question" => "answer".
