Possible duplicate of: Should I close a question now I have moved jobs and can no longer verify answers?
I asked a question nearly 4 years ago after encountering a problem doing a Java tutorial. After a few days I think I gave up and moved on to something else.
However, the question periodically receives new upvotes, answers and seems to have a good number of views. In total:
- 6 upvotes
- 1 Favorite
- 16K views
- 3 answers
I've tried to post comments to the ticket to make it clear I never found resolution and moved on, but I'm not sure if I should do something else. A few options that seem available:
Delete or close the question - likely not preferable since it seems people are still having this issue.
Leave the question open - Seems preferable given the lack of resolution
Accept my own answer saying I never found a fix.
Note: the possible duplicate I listed above was apparently rather localized; I can't gauge if that would apply in this case given the question is no longer viewable.
