I have a couple of questions on SO, :
Both I feel are interesting valid questions I would like an answer to, both pertain to the same problem - I was seeking two different approaches to solving the same problem, extensive google searches didn't find an answer.
Both have answers which do not answer the question and are stuck (one says there is no way of doing it the way I proposed and prompted question 2, the other needs more input from me but is veering towards an approach other than that requested.
Finally, I have found a third solution which does not relate (directly) to either solution but works great for my needs.
The trouble is, I dont really have time to set up tests and examples for these old approaches to move the questions forward.
Quite often when I find a solution before anyone answers - I post it myself as an answer, but in this case it doesn't answer the question asked (although it does solve the problem behind it).
Any suggestions on what I should do here - shall I just delete them, or shall I leave them up unattended in the hope someone knows how.
My thoughts are, delete the one I am told not possible, leave the other. Although this is about specific posts, are their any general guidelines for deleting questions?
