I've been browsing through some of the questions on the Life Hack SE, and noticed that recently one particular user has been posting questions and then answering them themselves.
I know self answered questions are encouraged if a solution is found but I was just wondering where we stand with respect to someone doing it many times - IMO it looks like they have just been going through a pre-existing Life Hacks site and just looking for answers.
Don't get me wrong they are good answers and some good questions, it just seems to be a way of 'farming' rep and badges on the site - is this acceptable or is it not a problem at all?
Here are a few of the questions I found:
- How to open blister packs without cutting yourself?
- How to keep track of which earphone is left or right?
- How to keep water from boiling over?
- How do I stop my cable from getting tangled inside my box?
This is not me trying to rat someone out or anything, I just wanted to know the rules regarding this type of Q&A.
