Dec 8 '17 at 20:06 comment added Mike Pierce @M.Winter, yeah, adding a little explanation to the question is a good idea. I think that's all you need to avoid downvotes/closevotes, because that explanation adds "context" to the question. I'll guess that many users, when they vote to close an question, justify that vote because the question lacks context.
Dec 8 '17 at 20:00 comment added hardmath I agree. It is in keeping with the mission of Math.SE to promote learning "at all levels" to post Questions that are for the benefit of future Readers. Upvoting and Downvoting will occur as usual, as may Editing, but edits to the Question or to a self-Answer should not change the intent of original poster.
Dec 8 '17 at 19:24 comment added M. Winter Thank you very much for your answer and for sharing your experience with this idea. My biggest concern is that I get a bunch of down-votes and closing-attempts. It seems the concept of self-answering and using SE for knowledge sharing is not well established among the users. I am glad it went so well in your case! I also think of placing a small explanation of my intention below my question (as you did it), maybe with a link to this question to back-up my point.
