While there are other pre 100 rep answer own question threads, none that I've seen put forward what I'd like to ask.
I have only just recently joined so my reputation isn't large, so user privilege affected the quality of a question/answer in a negative way. The situation this formed from was when I created a question and before the wait time to be able to answer my own question was passed I managed to solve my problem. As I could not add the answer for another 6 hours I edited the question to include the answer to the question, to which I would properly add the answer afterwards. I felt it was reasonable to make the edit until such a time to prevent people from wasting their time trying to figure it out, when I already had an answer. However this attracted a moderators attention, the edit was removed, his reasoning posted that I should answer using the post an answer. However what was asked of me was just impossible to do due to the way the site was constructed for people under 100 rep.
Now from what I've gathered from other questions, users are restricted from creating answers this early to prevent them from creating lots of answers and treating the site as a forum more than anything else.
From what I can see a user can make more than one answer for a question, however what I feel would be a better solution that still addresses the problem would be to limit users under 100 rep to only 1 answer a question.
Even if this is not possible it may be wise to have some form of advice regarding if the edit is about an answer popup to a user under 100 rep when they try to edit their question. Having an agreed upon popup for new users wanting to answer their question before the time limit has passed as to prevent un-needed time wastage for other users would be helpful and help keep the site focused.
Is this sort of solution worthwhile or should things remain exactly as they are?
