    Re: SS leg - answers with or later on

    I like the idea of having the answers in a seperate clearly marked message.

    'OK. Lets hear from everyone else. I have had people complain that the
    answers
    were posted too soon. So????'
    
    
    Like a lot of things there are pluses and minuses, both ways. Not having
    the answers does make it a little harder, which may be no bad thing (and
    closer to the real world) and may encourage people to write in with
    results and problems encountered.
    
    One way to keep most people happy might be to post the answers as a
    separate message and clearly labeled. Then people could choose when to
    open them.
    
    Another would be to alternate, with answers on one leg, without the
    next.
    
    Or, and this may be what you are doing, encourage people to vote then
    count the result. All along this process of learning Nav I have liked
    having the answers, it means you can work both forwards towards a result
    and back from the answer to find out how they got it (!)
    
    but after thinking about it I would like to vote for having the answers
    posted later on. After all, once they are posted it encourages you to
    have another session with the problem. Remember the power of persistance
    - greater, eventually, than talent or cleverness.
