If we import a question from TeX.SX which doesn't have an answer there and give an answer here, do we let the OPs of such questions know there is an answer, but just not on TeX.SX?

Point in question: https://topanswers.xyz/tex?q=362 and its original https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/518333

Of course this is only applicable once we go public.

I agree with @Caleb that in the current climate posting links on tex.se might not be well received.

While it won't be enforcible for all possible licenses, I suggest to first ask the original author before reposting answers from here on tex.se. For example I would prefer if my answers would not be reposted there.

This is going to be a tricky issue, and will possibly evolve over time. For starters, playing it safe and not stepping on toes is probably the best plan.

For now...

Where ever possible, answer questions that were asked on SE on SE. For cases where that isn't feasible (e.g. poster doesn't have an SE account), somebody else is free to post a summary of what was posted here (under CC-BY-SA usage) that does answer the question, but since citing the source is required, it is quite fair to link back to the full answer here.

Also  for now...

I think *commenting* on SE with "this question answered [here]" is a bad idea. Either answer the question there or don't. The primary source material can be posted here first, but either answer posts or don't, just linking without answering will only fuel animosity.
Do we let OPs of imported questions know there is an answer?

The result is already posted by @samcarter ;) what would happen in case of cross website citing :d
Skillmon replying to Caleb
sounds reasonable, want to write it up as an answer?

Notably I think commenting on SE with "this question answered [here]" is a bad idea.

Doh, jinxed by scroll issues.

Tumbleweeds.

I agree with @samcarter that we might want to be very careful with these actions. What if we tell a user "Hey, you can find an answer on this site" and a few minutes later someone posts an answer on SE. Even worse, what if the answers are very similar? I feel that, if we really want to import questions, then only tough cookies.

Thanks! Quite useful this Q&A website for getting answers :)
Skillmon replying to samcarter
according to a quick search, it's tumbleweed.
samcarter replying to Skillmon
I hope so :) (Note to myself: have to look up the name of the bushes until then)
Skillmon replying to samcarter
will there be these cool rolling bushes?

@carlatex @skillmon Stackexchange will end up like these ghost towns in the old wild west movies, with dust blowing through empty streets :)
Skillmon replying to CarLaTeX
and since the employees leave, too, they will not be plural anymore...
CarLaTeX replying to samcarter
If they continue to suspend users they will end up to be alone...
samcarter
It would certainly be a nice advertisement for topanswers. On the other hand I don't know how stackexchange will react to such actions in the current climate in which people get suspended en mas: https://chat.stackoverflow.com/transcript/197438?m=48055422#48055422
