When I asked this question, I initially provided a few answers of my own. Rather than mention some games that we play in the question itself, I decided to post them as answers. I think referring to specific games in the question would discourage people from providing those answers; however, I thought those games were good options and should be voted on. This was questioned so I decided to remove my answers pending further discussion.
I'm not sure if my question should be made community wiki or not. It seems to me like it probably should, but I find the CW criteria pretty vague now. However, that's not what I want to focus on here. The debate over subjective questions and CW has been had elsewhere. I'd like this to focus on answering one's own question.
I agree with the general sentiments expressed here in that I generally don't ask questions I know the answer to and, if I do, I wait a while before providing my own answer. However, that is my personal preference and I don't know if I would want to make that a rule. I think every member of the community has the right to answer any question, even questions they asked. In general, it may not be advisable to do so right away in that it may discourage others from answering and may result in the question and answer not being upvoted much, but that's at the discretion of the questioner, IMO. However, I think that mostly goes for objective questions. I'm not sure it's as much an issue for subjective ones.
So, is answering one's own question right away discouraged? Or, is it just a bad idea from the standpoint of earning rep? Does it make a difference if the question is subjective?
