Yesterday I wrote a question in Stack Overflow and after 2 hours I found a "solution", I would answer, for the first time, at my question and Stack Overflow block my answer with this message:
Oops! Your answer couldn't be submitted because:
- Users with less than 100 reputation can't answer their own question for 8 hours after asking. You may self-answer in 5 hours. Until then please use comments, or edit your question instead.)
and I would want to understand why there is this block?
Yesterday I worked around it by adding on my question a block [answer]answer[/answer] as shown at screen shot below and today I modified again the post moving the block out into an answer but, for me, it is strange to have self-answer block.
EDIT: because Cody and Rory ask why I add the tag [ANSWER] on my question the answer is simple: I didn't know how tell that I resolved the problem so I create that tag for underline that it was out of my question and temporarly there...
