Sometimes I write questions that are arguably too long, just trying to provide the context to understand what the question is.
In these cases I am then hesitant to post my attempt at answering the question because then the question would be even longer, sometimes absurdly long.
I have tried to find a nice compromise -- adding my attempt as a community wiki answer, that way I don't get additional reputation besides upvotes for the question itself.
I feel like putting the attempt in the answers improves the readability of the whole post, and making it community wiki removes possible conflicts of interest from doing so.
However, at the same time, I feel like I am misusing the features of the site as they were originally intended, and thus I am not sure if this is behavior that should be frowned upon or not.
This question seems related, but more general: RFC: Social norm about 'not an answer, just too long for a comment' and community wiki -- perhaps one could reach a more definitive answer about this more specific case than seemed to be possible for the general case.
