I'm not sure if this has ever happened or not(I tried to search a lot on meta, but found no relevant questions regarding it). So here is my question. What happens if some user happens to post a programming question of Meta and another user answers that question on Meta itself.
Let's assume the OP of the question has described the problem very clearly with relevant examples and proper code snippets displaying the OP's efforts and also, the OP of the answer has posted the perfect answer the OP was in search of, with proper explanation, supported with facts, et al. What do we do in such a case?! Do we still downvote the question and close it, and let, what would have been a really nice question + answer combo, disappear in the woods somewhere? Or do we have a mechanism to protect(not sure what the exact word should be) the question along with its answer so that it can be useful for others in the future?
Note: I've not come across any such question myself, but just that this thought struck me suddenly(after seeing so many programming questions on meta these days).
