That's it, more or less. I came across a question consisting solely of the task, yet found it rather interesting. So I gave it a try, but failed. I am thinking about adding this attempt to the question, to eventually get some people look into it. Do there exist any guidelines on that?

    $\begingroup$ I personally would have preferred a separate well written question. If the question you saw has answers already your addition might be out of place. If it has none, it should be closed. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Sep 10 '15 at 22:18
  • $\begingroup$ @AsafKaragila I did that once on another SE, my question then got closed as duplicate. But thank you for the input. $\endgroup$ – 355durch113 Sep 10 '15 at 22:19

    $\begingroup$ If you establish in your post that the current answers are insufficient, there's no reason to close it as a duplicate. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Sep 10 '15 at 22:21

As Asaf suggested: post your own question. Since you are the one who's really interested in it, you should also be the one deciding which answer gets accepted, etc.

Do include a link to the question, stating that it is a source of your question, and adding what you have found about it so far.
