Discussing solved challenges ¶

It seems to me that very little is discussed on the forum.
The main reason is of course that we're not allowed to give away solutions to the challenges.
So discussion of a challenge is limited to a few hints or the way the solution has to be entered.
Being able to discuss a challlenge, once you've solved it of course, would be very interesting.
It would allow members to share their methods of solving, theoretical background, source codes etc.
If you were able to solve a challenge it's by no means certain that your method was the fastest, shortest or most elegant. But another forum member might have solved it in a 'better' way, and if he wants to share it everybody could learn a lot from that.
If a challenge would not only have a forum topic which is public, but also a private forum topic, then all this would be possible.
Once you've solved the challenge you get access to the privat topic and you can join the discussion there.
I don't know if this is technically possible (without too much effort), but I would be interested in the views of the other forum members.
