I have what I think is a pretty cool question +answer. What is the best way to encourage discussion (possibly find alternative solutions)?
How long to leave the question before answering? I think this is better place to talk about this before trying because I am sure there will be an optimal method.
My current thought is to broaden the topic so it can apply to more situations than my own, leave it for an amount of time (I'm hoping an active member can give a clue), and then post the solution (this case example bash script and python).
