I've been lurking in this community for quite a while and finally want to start participating and golfing. I'm mostly an iOS developer so I expect to golf in Swift and Objective-C. I recently added an answer to Tips for golfing in Swift and I am wondering what the educate is for answering these types of questions.

If I have multiple tips, should I aggregate them into a single answer or spread them across multiple answers?


1 Answer 1


The standard is one tip per answer. If you look at the existing tips questions (like Tips for golfing in Python), you'll see that they specifically state this.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks. Not every tip question states this, so I wanted to make sure. Is this documented anywhere? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @JAL It's more of a precedent than a policy. It makes it easier to vote up good tips and vote down bad tips. If a good tip and a bad tip were in the same answer, how would you vote? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Note that what counts as "one tip" is a bit of a judgment call. Some tips include multiple ways to deal with a situation or multiple ways a trick can be used. \$\endgroup\$
