Will answering your own question make people answer more quickly?

    Sometimes I will answer my own question anonymously to "get the ball rolling", so to speak, with mixed results. Seems to work better if I answer blatantly wrong, or just outright troll myself. 

    What a life I got, eh?

    Unlikely.

    As I am unable to post questions because they are immediately "ghosted" (No ! - Placing any URL for the question within an Update does not help, neither does moving the question between categories help either), perhaps people would like to consider why apparently only my answers may sometimes get all their paragraph-breaks removed. See example here:

    No, no reason it should. If anything, if an OP answers their own question (with a correct answer) quickly, when few or no other users have had the opportunity to reply, it indicates the OP didn't need to post the question in the first place because they already knew the answer - which would be a violation. The site is for questions seeking information, not questions one already knows the answer to.

    I don't think so.

    No.  It usually just gets you reported for interacting with yourself.

    No Answering your own Question will not have any Effect on making your Question get Answered Faster

    No, usually just the opposite. It will make some just skip the question.

    No, not if your question or your answer are chat violations. You do not get any points when you answer your own question and you cannot choose your own answer as favorite/best answer. All you are doing is?wasting your own and other people's time and Verizon's power memory space and bandwidth in an attempt to get attention and feed your ego. YA is NOT and never has been a chat forum.
