A discussion broke out in the comments to this riddle regarding splitting riddles into multiple parts. In this case QuyNguyen2013 had added hints to his first riddle and put them as new questions. There are other riddles like this that have clues split up over multiple questions. I'm not a fan of this, but I'm not sure what everyone else thinks. Should this be considered acceptable behavior?
I think that releasing hints as separate puzzles will just create more clutter on the questions end, as they're typically too short or simple to count as a full puzzle in their own right.
A better place for them would probably be in the question itself.
I don't see any reason why the answer to one puzzle shouldn't be a clue to another puzzle.
"Ric isn't a fan of this" doesn't seem (to me) like a good reason to ban it. OP could simply move on to another puzzle which he/she likes better.
So long as each puzzle is valid as a standalone puzzle, I don't thing that it is the same thing as a multiple part riddle.
It seems like we should not allow it.
It defeats the point of the question being answerable in itself like all other questions on the Stack Exchange.
Also, if the other question is ever deleted, then this one would be broken.
It is okay to reference another question, but not depend upon it.
Also, this manner of posting creates a puzzle out of the site and not just out of the question.
