Re: Request reg posting OA and Links to previous explainatio [#permalink]

A request to all forum members:
- Please do not include the OA in your original post.
- Please do not post link to any previous discussion on the posted question until current forum participants get a chance to discuss and attempt a solution.
Thanks for your cooperation & good luck to all!
my 2 cents, I agree with you on OA, but I am not so sure about the link. Many times you see questions repeated very often. If there is no pointed question from the poster on the concept & if there is there is a place in this forum with detailed discussion, I think by posting the link it would actually help us conserve everybodies time. Should the person still has any specific question he/she can always repost. Having said that I do see your point.
Point noted, Praveen. It's quite a temptation to click on the link immediately before attempting to reason out the question; but I do get your point. Moreover, the link might point to additional perspectives / arguments which might have been put forth for the question by previous responders.
I take my words back on posting the link, but please consider not posting OA's alongwith the original question.
This has been discussed in the past. Provide the link only if it has been recently discussed. If the question has not been posted for 3 weeks+, many members should get the chance to answer it first, and the OA be posted second, before those links be provided.
I agree with not posting the OA in the original message. However I am wondering if you can suggest a specific number of days, like the 2-3 mentioned in the previous post, by which the OP should give the OA.
Though I appreciate the time given for members to discuss the question and come to their own conclusion, it is a little frustrating when the OA is not posted until a few weeks after the question is posed.
