Is it possible to add test data to questions and comments in this forum like in the arcgis and other forums? I have previously done this via services like google docs -but it would be easier if it can be done within gis.stackexchange.com itself.

    The same question was asked on a sister site and was declined. – whuber Jan 19 '12 at 6:19
  • To bad -maybe they should look at working with one of the file hosting sites so that we can simply click a link like "add data" and then enter our openid/similar credentials and add the files so that it autolinks into the stackexchange sites. – GeorgeC Jan 19 '12 at 6:34

I think adding a link to your own dropbox site, or other, would be a good start. I think there are several issues regarding data being passed into the site, IP, Copyright, etc, which would be a bugger to handle. I am guessing it's best if we were left to police that ourselves.
