I spend a fair amount of my time on Stack Overflow in the review queues, typically in the 10k tools for reviewing flags (NAA, New Answers to Old questions), and I think it might be fair to say that we have a slight problem with answers that are being posted with a link-only pointing to GitHub.
Link-only answers have been discussed a lot (1, 2, 3, many more). My question is more specific about how should we handle the influx of answers pointing to GitHub without any code, and/or explanation about the link.
My first run through the New Answers to Old questions for the day provided all of the following GitHub links without any code or explanation:
I know I can comment on all of them asking for the answerer to expand and explain why these links will work. I can down-vote them, and I can also flag them using a custom flag or NAA and hope these answers would be deleted.
How should we best handle the GitHub problem? Since there are so many answers posted with links to GitHub and without code, do we want to go the route of jsfiddle where, if the link is present, then code must exist in the answer as well?
