I was trying to solve a common problem the other week and upon checking Stackoverflow there was a solution, but it just seemed like there should be a better way to do it. I thought about it for a while and then had a random idea which I thought could have a chance of working, but I didn't really understand why it would work. It was just a hunch. Regardless, I ended up spending a couple days testing it out, and to my surprise, it actually worked!
I'm not sure if I'm the first one to discover this technique (probably not), but what should I do now? I'm not a researcher, don't have a blog, not in school, etc. Is there anywhere I could post this and have people let me know if it is novel, interesting, correct, or something along those lines? I could just post it as an answer to the existing question, but because it is an old question with many replies I doubt it will get much notice.
My apologies if this isn't the correct place to post a question like this. I looked through the Stackexchange site listing and this seemed like a good place, but I'm not sure.
