@Matteo well... the official answer is that we should use tag wikis like this one. As mods, we can create community wiki posts, and we've had a bit of a debate on that already. I like the idea conceptually, but I've seen it work out... badly. There's been requests to make tag wikis better too. Feel free to raise a meta post arguing your case...

I've closed this as being a list-of question, which we generally don't allow here. That said, I've mentioned this to other moderators in chat, as we persistently get these questions (our first was one) and we've debated allowing them before, so this could be re-opened (and you can still see the answers given anyway).

comment Assistance Cracking Classical Cipher
I agree with the others on providing a little explanation as to how you decoded this. I don't think it needs to be a step by step guide, but a brief overview of what you did would no doubt steer the OP in the right direction :)

comment Applying multiple hash functions to improve security?
I've closed this for now as a duplicate of the other question, the discussion on there should help I hope :) If your question is different (and I'm just not seeing it), do feel free to edit/reply to me here and we can look at re-opening it.

comment After implementing a novel encryption algorithm, how would one go about analyzing its security or get help from others in doing so?
Guys, just a friendly note - if you're providing an answer to a question, use the answer box, not the comment box. Big hint - some of these comments are semi answers! :)
