I've seen three questions in the last few days that have a similar, and unusual, life cycle:
- OP poses question,
- some good answers come in,
- time passes,
- OP comes back to report how it went.
That last bit, though, seems to get a little problematic.
- In one case, it's posted as an answer and drawing Not An Answer flags.
But they've been disputed.It's been removed.
- In another case OP came back and added it as an addendum to the question. (Looks like they were prompted to do so by a comment explicitly asking for this sort of update.) This edit occasioned a conversation in chat asking for a mod's input, and it strikes me as clear from that conversation that there's not an abundance of clarity/consensus on this sort of thing.
- The third case (10K+ only) is a little different: the question asked if something was balanced, it wasn't, but from the answers the OP was able to come up with something that was balanced, and wanted to share that back. But they got conflicting advice on how to do that from two high-rep users (one with a diamond).
So (some) new users are getting conflicting advice/direction and (some) experienced users (incl. me) are unsure where the consensus lies. In the interests of developing and showcasing expertise, it seems like the result of a situation should have some place in the Q&A. But where?
