I have a tip about using Stack Exchange I want to share. It's just a small tip for adding comments on iOS, nothing spectacular, but I'm certain there are other users who'll find it useful. I'm hesitating on where and how to share it.

  • It's not an undocumented feature of Stack Exchange, so I can't post it as an answer here: What are the hidden features of Stack Exchange?
  • In the past, people have posted blogs about this. That could be an option, but with only one tip, it's a bit meager and I like it to be part of the community-controlled content.
  • Another option is to post it as a self-answer.
    • It works on the mobile website, but also in the app, so Web Applications isn't the right choice.
    • I'm sure somebody can come up with an equivalent tip for Android, so that rules out Ask Different.
    • That leaves this site, Meta Stack Exchange, as the only option.

Because there are probably more people who have tips & tricks to share, I'd like the idea of a Community Wiki post à la Please share your hidden macOS features or tips and tricks on Ask Different. To be honest, that one has grown a bit out of proportion, and I don't expect it to happen for this particular topic. Do you think this is a good idea, or have I missed something?

  • I probably will regret offering this but did you consider SO Documentation? It seems perfect for this ... – rene Aug 3 '17 at 19:29
  • @rene Documentation is only available for tags with at least 500 questions on Stack Overflow. [stack-exchange] doesn't qualify. But supposing we had it on Meta Stack Exchange, that would have been a good option. – Glorfindel Aug 3 '17 at 19:32

    @Glorfindel I'd expect such to find in the se-meta-meta tag wiki FAQ questions. ;-D – user0042 Aug 3 '17 at 19:37

    Nobody reads tag wikis [citation-needed], and this is not about how to use Meta Stack Exchange, but Stack Exchange as a whole. – Glorfindel Aug 3 '17 at 19:38

    @Glorfindel "but Stack Exchange as a whole." That's why I said meta-meta. – user0042 Aug 3 '17 at 19:40
  • OK. I personally would reserve that for discussing things specific to Meta Stack Exchange, but YMMV. – Glorfindel Aug 3 '17 at 19:41

    What is the tip you want to post? Could you make it a Q & A? – jonrsharpe Aug 3 '17 at 21:24
  • @jonrsharpe yes, but the A would be too long to post it in this Q, distracting from the main point of the question. – Glorfindel Aug 4 '17 at 5:52
