I'm seeing more users who ask their question, and engage in discussion in comments (under their question, and under my own answers), but then the conversation gets to a point where what I think is needed is for them to edit their question with a clarification.
Then what they do is add a new answer to their own question with the clarification. This is frustrating because then it's a matter of telling them "hey, what you really want to do is update your question."
Now, on your own question, there is an
alert() that pops up that says:
Are you sure you want to answer your own question?
If you're responding to answers left under your question, use the comments link under each answer.
My suggestion is that this could be updated to say something like:
If you need to add details to your original question, use "edit" to add examples, details, code you've tried, etc.
There may be another way to handle it, but some newer users seem not to get it, and I suspect a UI change might help alleviate this practice.
