In my view, the way story-identification questions are written is not useful for future readers.
For example, someone might ask:
"I'm looking for a [work] that I can remember from [time]. I can remember a [sidecharacter] who did on regular base [activity]. Also at some point he met [villain] on [strange occasion]. can you tell me its name?"
Which would be, as far as I can tell, totally on-topic for story identification. But I ask myself, is it likely that, someone is ever going to ask for the same story by using enough significant words to find this post by i.e. Googling?
I don't want to start a discussion about whether these questions should be banned here. I don't like them but I understand their relevance.
But when I saw this post, and noticed he asked and self-answered it immediately, I asked myself, how far is this tolerated here?
I had a look into the help center, which gave no evidence this could be off-topic. But is this really encouraged?
I could easily spam questions her,e summing up the significant pictures I have in mind of some stories, and then just answer them by myself.
This would be well written and totally on-topic (as I understand it).
But would this really help future readers in any way?
this isn't intended to be any kind of rant or whatever, so to make clear my intention to ask this I put in here my statement to Rand al'Thor's comment:
"I could easily spam questions in here summing up the significant pictures I have in mind of some storys and then just answer their titles by myself." Yes, and this would be abusing the site. Many on-topic subjects can be abused if someone really wants to abuse them. See also Should I flood the homepage of the site with these questions? – Rand al'Thor
I'm not asking this from the POV of someone who WANTS to abuse them. But as far as I know, the whole SE concept is encouraging self-answers.
But how is it here? Is it abusing in the moment I'm asking a question, while being aware of the answer?
Is it abusing in the moment I intentionally do this to flood the page? When it is obviously intentional?
And especially, if it isn't discouraged to do this, where is the border between posting well-written and meaningful questions to all stories I know just for adding high-quality content to the page, versus just flooding the site with redundant objective "spam"?
