I revisited old questions I asked a long time ago for which I didn't accept any answers.
It was somewhat problematic.
- I do not need an answer any more. For some reason, the question is now irrelevant (abandoned project or whatever).
- I do not even recall if I solved the issue or not
- If I did solve it, I do not recall if it was using the answer or not.
- In some cases, I didn't dig enough in the issue to gain enough experience to pick an answer
Should I blindly accept the seemingly best answer, delete the question or just leave it there to rot?
I was considering deletion because the answers might be bad. Someone with a similar issue might be dissatisfied with the answers and having the question already asked, he might not ask it again (duplicate).
Although, deletion might remove some useful answer that I cannot grasp...
And picking an answer blindly just to increase my accept rate really sounds dumb. (I'm going accept that
2+2 != potato because it quite possibly true!)
