Hi all!

I'm wondering if following would work as a community site:

Instead of posting a question user posts a quick tip for how to achieve certain actions in certain conditions. For example:

  • keyboard shortcuts (for power user);
  • code snippets (for stackoverflow);
  • anything other (for any other site of the family);

Additionally one would post advantages and disadvanteges of proposed actions. After all - there is more than one way to do it in any situation.


You can do this on the SO family of sites as long as you phrase it in the form of a question, then provide your tip as an answer. Then the community can fill in the "more than one way to do it" for you.

  • true, but IMHO answering own question with the tip just doesn't sound right .) – Eimantas Sep 12 '09 at 18:52

    @Eimantas: Then your HO is wrong: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/2706 :) – Eric Sep 12 '09 at 18:58
  • Eimantas: It's perfectly legitimate to answer your own question, see stackoverflow.com/faq - "It's also perfectly fine to ask and answer your own question, but pretend you're on Jeopardy: phrase it in the form of a question." – dbr Sep 12 '09 at 19:40
  • Thanks, Eric! I guess i was searching using the wrong terms for this issue ,) – Eimantas Sep 12 '09 at 19:41

Isn't is the same simply removing the question mark at the end of the question?

    Like a question mark makes a difference. I'm Ron Burgandy? – Eric Sep 12 '09 at 18:51
  • true again, but main concept is "ask a question" and not "give us a tip" ,) – Eimantas Sep 12 '09 at 18:52
