This question already has an answer here:
- Should I not answer my own questions? 17 answers
On a couple of occasions, I've posted answers to my own questions, only to have them downvoted when other users found the answers to be too obvious.
Some users have even told me not to answer my own questions if the answer can be found easily, and criticized the apparent lack of effort that I've put into these questions (even when I've answered my own questions immediately after posting them, and put a reasonable amount of effort into the answers to my own questions.)
An example of one of these questions can be found here: this is one of a few occasions where my efforts to answer my own questions have attracted a lot of negative attention, for reasons that I still don't understand.
