Is it bad form to ask questions about problems I don't have?

A lot of Drupalers have their own blog where they share their how-tos and trips. I have a few to share as well but don't want to setup and maintain my own blog.

Is it ok to post them on DA? For example, I want to show how I replaced basic OG functionality with flags and node reference (including links to posts that helped me get there).

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Please, create a blog — subscribing is not so good on Stackoverflow :( – kalabro Apr 20 '12 at 8:52

    @kalabro Actually you can subscribe to any user's questions/answers as an RSS feed (the link is at the bottom of each profile page) – Clive Apr 20 '12 at 12:05

    I would suggest to wait a day, or two, before writing your own answer; this is not required, but users will feel free to writing their own answers. You could also get interesting answers you didn't think of before. – kiamlaluno Apr 23 '12 at 3:57
  • @kiamlaluno +1. Wait a day, or two, before writing your own answer, is the better way if you're planning to add a howto. – niksmac Apr 25 '12 at 8:43

Yes, please do :)

Asking questions that you already know the answer to is fine, in fact it's encouraged (I'm quoting Can I answer my own questions, even those where I knew the answer before asking? here).

As long as the post is phrased in the style of a question (e.g. How can I recreate Organic Groups on a more basic scale?), and is on-topic/useful to the site (which I'm sure that particular question would be), then it would be a valuable addition to the site.

You never know, you might even get an answer from someone else in the community who's solved the same problem in a simpler way. Everyone wins really!

EDIT

Also see Posting and answering questions you have already found the answer to, in which the fabled Jeff Atwood himself encourages people to do this. I think this second question is actually a far better example, the OP is basically asking the same question that you have, just not about Drupal in particular.
