I have posted this question. I had set a bounty on it and I have found the answer in the meanwhile. Can I answer it myself? There are no answers by others neither comments so far... Thanks!

I do not see any problem with that, personally. If you happened to find a solution to your problem, this is nice to share it with other users of this site. If a bounty was started, then you can get it or wait for new replies before bounty end (if you want to award the bounty to another great answer, letting a comment beneath your question might be a good idea).
