We've started getting some questions and self-answers about basic OR questions that get asked over and over again on other sites, like:
- How to linearize the product of a binary and a non-negative continuous variable?
- How to linearize the product of two binary variables?
- In an integer program, how I can force a binary variable to equal 1 if some condition holds?
(Full disclosure: I wrote the last one.) I think it's great for the site to have these questions and I plan to write more of them; I hope others do too.
In a comment on one of those questions, it was proposed that questions like these should be made Community Wikis. My sense is that on other sites, questions like this get converted to CWs much later, but I don't really know what the pros and cons are (other than the questions and answers not earning any reputation).
So: Should we make "basic" OR questions into Community Wikis?
Update: To express your opinion about whether we should make basic OR questions CWs, please post an answer or vote on one. To express your opinion about whether this question is a good question, please vote on the question.
