I was looking through some answers on a question to which I contributed, and another answer said to look at my post. Would it be appropriate to add a hyperlink that then points to my post. The other user specifically mentioned my post, but it seems iffy to edit his post to link to my post if I am the one to do it. Is this useful and acceptable to edit and add a hyperlink?

The other user specifically referred to your post. So IMO adding a link will make the answer more useful.

    Agreed. This is not an ego game, you're doing this to make the content on the site more useful, which is the ultimate goal here.

    But you get ego points for having your ego in check by asking!
