I'd like to discuss the case 'How to enlarge a Sketchup Model' question and my answer of course.
I do agree with Robert Cartaino when he said: 'The folks here will work hard to curate this collection of knowledge(...)'
It's true that SE forums are so valuable also because there are hard working moderators and editors - no doubt.
I also agree with this (but with some objections): '(...) when someone finally finds this site through search, the last thing we want to do is send them elsewhere to find that information'
Being strict, according to this part, linking is not allowed... which is not true isn't it?. I didn't link poor websites or other forums or any information from "somewhere" / "elsewhere". I did link "the sources", pages which are the real sources of the knowledg in the case of asked question. And because these sources are quite big and stable, it's high prpbablility that there were available for long time (till the question and answer will have any meaning) and they will be the most accurate and up to date as possible.
So the question is, should I rewrite such sources just because answer based on links is not allowed or maybe it's better to be not such strict.
Please consider and express what you think about such situations.
ps: I admit my answer could be comment insted of answer and if there will be such will of mods I'll rewrite it as comment as I wanted to help this user (and I think he upvoted which means he gathered the knowledge he asked for).
