Here I see that "Stack Exchange has always explicitly encouraged users to answer their own questions".
But is there any limitations on the self-answered questions? I guess they are surely must be on-topic for the site and this is not mentioned just because it is the obvious, am I correct? Is there any other limitations?
In the blog there is an entry: https://blog.stackoverflow.com/2011/07/its-ok-to-ask-and-answer-your-own-questions/
which says "never hesitate to ask and answer your own question on any Stack Exchange site". How official is this position?
For example; we can consider this question and discussion in comments to it: Task 39 from iqtest.dk It raises two specific questions:
- Must self-answered question be interesting for many people? If yes, then how many?
- Must it be as narrow and specific as possible, as required from usual questions?
I see that one other specific question (about self-promotion questions) where already answered here: Limits for self-promotion in answers , but not the mentioned above.
