Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I asked an (upvoted) question a year ago but never received any answer.

At this moment it also isn't that important to me since I solved it in a completely different way.

Should I remove the question to have my acceptance rate at 100% again?
Or just leave it unanswered?

I take it the "completely different way" wouldn't be an answer to the question as asked then? – Ben Brocka Jan 6 '13 at 13:34
If there is no answer at all to the question, it doesn't count for the accept rate anyway. – Daniel Fischer Jan 6 '13 at 14:59
@Roeland: your visible acceptance rate is at 100%. – David Robinson Jan 6 '13 at 17:34
Yes, now it is. – r03 Jan 6 '13 at 18:01

If you solved it, you can post an answer yourself. If not you can leave it for other users. Someone else might find a solution to it and post it. And in the future it might be useful to others.

Accept rate does not mean a thing. Don't remove questions for the sake of it!

No, but people my not respond if it is low. But I think you are correct in not deleting a question for this reason. – r03 Jan 6 '13 at 13:53
