Eeek, I'm getting a suggestion that this is "subjective and likely to be closed." I apologize if this is the wrong type of question, but since it's a "I'm a beginner, what's the etiquette" question, I have no idea how to go about answering it otherwise.
What is the appropriate etiquette for answering your own question? I can think of three potential scenarios. Are all of these allowed, encouraged, frowned upon?
- I ask a question that I don't know the answer to. Outside of this site, I discover the answer later. I now bring that knowledge back to the site.
- I ask a question that I think I know the answer to, but I'm not positive. I add the answer to the question to see if it gets voted up and deemed correct.
- I have a question that I know the answer to, and I think it would add value to the site if the question was here. I ask and answer my own question.
