This will probably get closed immediately as a duplicate, but I have read Etiquette for answering your own question and other similar questions, but didn't see this get addressed directly (though I might have missed something).
I've asked a question that someone answered with information that got me to a solution, albeit after some trial and error and additional investigation on my part.
I'd like to record the steps I took, based on their initial pointers, to make it easier for someone else to accomplish the same thing in the future. So:
- Is it better to edit their answer to include the steps I took or put those in another answer?
- And if the latter, should I accept my answer as the best? It seems churlish when someone else took the time to answer and got me on the right track, but I think my answer would be more immediately useful for future searchers.
