Not as much as when they bump their old questions with links to articles that only have a superficial connection to the original thread.

It makes them seem desperate for feedback from their questions
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 12/11/08 - 11:52:29 AM EST (GMT-5)
why would that bother me?
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 12/11/08 - 1:13:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope i dont care that much for that ....
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 12/11/08 - 2:59:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope....

I don't when they aren't simply answering their question but are providing relevant information.
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 12/11/08 - 3:44:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. Maybe they want to clarify, add additional information, or just make their own view/opinion known. It doesn't bother me.
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 12/11/08 - 6:22:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
i dont really care...
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 12/11/08 - 8:48:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm not that easily annoyed, really.

I would just wonder why they hadn't added that as a small anecdote/extra information in the story box. It would have made much more sense. This is what the box is about.

But whatever.
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 12/11/08 - 9:10:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
i really don't care
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 12/11/08 - 9:47:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
I actually prefer it. I want to see their opinion.

Only if they're not doing this.

If they're just answering their own question it most certainly does.
Why? It causes bias.

I usually don't notice.

I did it myself a few times when I forgot to include the link in the question. When I noticed, I added the link as the first 'response'.

It used to annoy me back when the question forum was different. Now that there is a 'latest questions' tab, it doesn't matter to me.
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 12/11/08 - 11:49:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
Like said above, only when they actually give their opinion. I don't care if they do add more info on the question's story, since it may be needed to make an informed decision.

It's improper YT etiquette

There's a section for doing that that you can attach to the question. There's no reason to reply to the question with this information.

I think it is pretentious for the creator to post first on their question.

The only reason I can see for it to be alright for a creator to have the first post, is if they were explaining their opinion on the question. But that is only if the question was non-biased to begin with. Which... is kind of a fail.

yes. it used to not bother me at all..

but then a lot of people started posting first on their own questions and it just became really annoying.

I don't really notice and I don't really care.

because that meant you didn't get to post first?

It bothers me when UltraLiberal does it.
9 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 9/22/12 - 9:38:05 AM EST (GMT-5)
No
