I wondered whether there is a point in posting a solution for a question that was never asked
- There is a topic that I frequently see as a question/topic discussed on the web, and I didn't see a great solution for it thus far.
- I do have a pretty simple (set of) solutions, that I am using, and I think it may be useful for some people although I did not see a question on the topic that was asked, when I tried to use some key words that I expect to appear in a question on that topic.
Is there still a point to take the time to write and post the issue and the solution that I'm using, pro and cons, which may help people that work around the problem differently? The main motivation is to share something that I think may be useful to people, with the risk of embarrassing myself if there is an obvious way to handle this case and I am the only one that sees it at as an issue I am also curios to see if there is a simpler solution, in case that it is indeed something that people encounter.
Do think it makes any sense Ito post something like that? to be clear, it would require some of my time to write a comprehensive description of the issue and my solution, and it is not that I am bored :), but if indeed it may help enough people in the community that encounter the problem then it may worth it.
In case that you think that it does worth writing and posting something like that, what will be a good place to post it that people will actually see / read it? if most people miss that, then clearly there is no point in posting it.
BTW, a completely different question about the mechanism of posting --- is there a way for me to see how my post looks like, post formatting, before I actually post it? I only see a button to create a topic but no "preview"
