I have tried to answer my own question. I am logged in. I tap the Add Answer hyperlink. I enter the text, and press the 'answer your own question' button, and my answer disappears. Extra-double-annoying.

This is answered in the FAQ, under How does karma system work?

Apparently you need 50 points to accept your own answers to your own questions. You don't have 50 points yet, though I just upvoted some of your questions to get you closer.

Doesn't it give you any error message? Anyway, since the Y2K20 bug I'm not that surprised about problems with Askbot.

Thanks @rburing, There was no error message, just deathly quiet, though if I tried again to enter an answer, the text of my previous attempt was restored. So it's weird that it worked when I logged in using FireFox... Probably I was mistaken. I see my Karma is now 51. So Chrome/Firefox probably wasn't the issue.
