As the title (hopefully tries to convey) - Is it advisable to answer a question with an answer that is more "supplementary"?
Like, based on other answers?
I would say, maybe, if the user (asker) is new, and an answer is (although correctly and accurately) explaining in a very detailed way - exactly what the question is asking about; I thought if I could write an answer based on the other answers, but in a "simpler" "language". That is,
(for a concrete example) (note I am kind of making this up, just to not make this question incredibly long)
Q: What is a simplest black hole?
- A1: A Schwarzschild one.
- A2: A hole that doesn't have angular momentum and no charge. (...)
based on A1, it is a Schwarzschild black hole (and, based on A2 - it has no angular-momentum(in other words it does not spin) and no charge(no electric charge)
(Based on a comment I edit this to be a bit better example)
based on A1 and A2; it is a Schwarzschild black hole (related to the Schwarzschild metric (being, an solution to Einstein's equations in General Relativity, that describes the gravitational field outside a spherical mass(Like Earth), on the assumption that the electric charge of the mass, angular momentum of the mass, and universal cosmological constant are all zero. -Wikipedia
Some things in the answer could be
- Added examples (when applicable).
- Explanations (at a different "level" or "point of view").
- More related (directly/indirectly) links.
this was a Ubuntu question i posted; which I forgot about; adding it as well.
