Here's a situation I face with one of my own questions:
I'm not sure what the hell to do with this. My current plan is to eventually accept my own answer.
Right now, the question is on my record as being unanswered. I wish this not to be the case.
I am not sure if I should delete it. I don't believe deleted questions show in search results, but I want this question to show up in searches so that people looking for this information can get pointed to the correct solution.
I am not sure if it should be closed. I don't know if closed answers show up in search results. If they do, then closing is fine. But I can't close it alone; I need other users to join with me. This means my accept rate is lower than it would be if I could close it by myself. If they don't show up in search results, then I don't want to close it.
In short, my goals are to:
- "Close" my question to further answers
- Remove the question from my list of unanswered questions
- Have my question come up in search results as a "signpost" for the correct answer
What should I do?
