When asking questions people have commented that my acceptance rate is low. And in a way it is low (hovers between 20 and 30 %). But i've run into a few issues regarding accepting answers.
There are cases where I get multiple good answers and I happen to use one of those. Or perhaps I use the first answer I got since it works, but newer, better answers are posted after (that I may or may not know about). I've hesitated accepting the answer that I used since I feel it carries some weight, especially for the casual user, as the 'right' way to do something.
The second case is where I did not receive any answer to solve my issue. Perhaps my question is just not written well enough to get a good answer, or perhaps I'm just doing something in a incorrect way so no one answers, or perhaps there is a answer that was eventually posted but I move in a diff direction to keep a project moving. These cases 'un-answered' question bring down my acceptance rate. How do i gets these off my record? I don't want to just delete since maybe they are of some value to someone else.
Trying to be a good citizen here but just don't know always know the social noms.
