From this question I got the strong impression that publicizing questions I've posted, by posting links to them in main chat--provided that it is done in moderation and not, for example, over and over again with the same question--is considered both acceptable and a particularly good way to use chat to handle questions.
So I've started doing this occasionally. No one has objected.
But another user seems to have done the same thing, and a moderator indicated that this goes against accepted chat etiquette. The moderator's comment got starred six times.
Am I doing it wrong? Is there a difference between what I've been doing and the situation there? Is this moderator's comment wrong? Is the advice (by another moderator) here wrong? Am I misunderstanding that advice?
Is the distinction that it's OK to post a question in main chat, but that it should be accompanied by some specific statement as to what I want people in chat to do with it? What if the statement would just be "hey, if you have time and feel like it, please take a look at this for me"? That's the specific sort of promotion I asked about here and thought I was told was OK. I feel a bit bewildered.
