I was just posting an answer to a question and realized that I didn't actually have a full solution to the problem. I'll often start typing/formatting my answer as I work on it, and occasionally, I'll get very close to the solution and something doesn't quite work. The answer still provides insight to a solution method, and is at least a starting point for the asker. My intention in actually posting this as an answer is that feedback from others usually "completes" the solution.
Since what I've posted doesn't technically answer the question when it is first posted, I assume this isn't allowed. Do others see this as my essentially using a "placeholder" to later complete the solution?
I know that this discussion exists, but I think this is slightly different. I'm not immediately intending to finish up the question. Rather, I'm hoping to open a dialogue that will result in an answer that is educational to both the OP, and myself.
The question/answer that sparked my worry about this: WeatherData for the 15th day of each month
