in reply to Does an idea have value?

This is a problem that has come up for me, not so much in the capacity of Perlmonks - where I am definitely here to seek wisdom not hand it out - but on some other forums

My own litmus test for these situations is this -

"This is just an idea, but, if it captures the imagination of whoever it was directed at, am I willing to make the effort to communicate the methods in my madness".

That can be a surprising amount of work, but its not the same thing as "Only post if I can do sufficient research via the web or elsewhere to allow me to prove the idea could work.". These are informal forums, albeit with a certain high standard. If someone wants infallible support, then they should pay for it.

If your willing to follow through, then IMHO its all good. As you say, sometimes just getting a feel for different perspectives on your problem is more important than getting an authorative answer.

Can I have a vowel please, Carol...
