This may be off-topic even for Meta, but I'd like some clarification before I do something stupid.
I've just created a Brainstorm proposal. Is it ok to mention it as part of a useful answer within Ask Ubuntu?
For example, there's this question: Thunderbird date format?
Could I go answer it and explain how to do the whole thing, step by step, and only then add a link to my Brainstorm idea, that deals with exactly that issue?
Jorge's answer here in Meta would seem to indicate otherwise http://meta.askubuntu.com/questions/1478/askubuntu-and-brainstorm but I'd like for us to establish official policy.
The idea is this one, if that's relevant: http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/idea/30055/
