What happens with questions being asked, just to provide an answer "FAQ Style"?
I have been guilty of asking a question like this, about the timezones for an in-game character's apperance. Both the question, and the answer, received upvotes.
But then I saw this question about how to break obsidian in Minecraft, and my reaction was a little less inviting. The question and answer received downvotes
What is the quota for asking a question, just so you can answer it?
EDIT: To clarify, the same user asked a similar question about the time-frame of an "Minecraft Tick". The question was downvoted (I'm assuming due to poor research effort) while my answer was upvoted, even though it was pretty much a direct cut/paste from the wiki. I also left a comment asking for a better research effort next time.
