I'll ask a question, then keep tinkering, and realize...
- ...what the answer is, OR
- ...that what I was trying to do is unworkable for 100 different reasons.
What's correct etiquette in these cases? Some people may have tried to answer, but I've realized I'm asking the impossible.
Read the comments under the first answer.
Do I answer my own question, explain my reasons and why I was an idiot for asking, then select my answer as the correct one?
Do I just provide an edit in the original question?
I would love to just delete the question, but people have provided answers, and I would have to have people vote to delete or close, which seems inherently complicated/asynchronous.
