Recently I had some questions and was going to post them here. While trying to find the best formulation for them I've found the answers.
Posting questions with immediate answers is welcome e.g. on Stack Overflow, but this site is different.
I'm sure my questions are interesting and the answers can be useful for other people. Should I post them here? If yes, how to do that in the best way?
My question is similar to this one but I think the linked question is more about site promotion while mine is about knowledge sharing.
I don't want to flood the site with question&answers invented specially to "farm" reputation. There are some problems that were puzzling me. If I was able to find the answers myself, so what? Should I just wait for other people to ask the same?
The answers given to the question linked above are essentially "Pretend to not know the answer. People like answering questions". Well, I like answering questions too. Why not answer my own?
So, should I...
- ... post such questions?
- ... indicate that I already know the answer?
- ... post my own answer?
- ... give other people some time to answer the questions before posting my own answer?
