Somebody edited this post of mine with the revision remark of "Jeopardy compliance". I tried to find what this is, but I have had no luck.

It's also perfectly fine to ask and answer your own question, but pretend you're on Jeopardy: phrase it in the form of a question.

Jeopardy is a TV game show in the US. Contestants are given an answer, and they must respond with a question - in other words all their responses have to be in the form of a question.

On StackOverflow, all questions have to be in the form of a question. If there's no question mark, or English sentence that that is interrogative, then the "question" isn't a question.

The edit, among other things, made sure there was a question that people could answer.
