I have posted a few questions on here that have not been met with a response. Going over them, I still do not have an answer, but I would not be able to confirm an answer or mark it as "most helpful", due to no longer having that particular project.
In one case, I still have no idea why a particular function was behaving like it was 'opposite day', to the point where I would not even be able to replicate the problem to confirm a solution. In another case, the issues were encountered in an environment that I would preferably never have to use, again, in this life or the next.
Should somebody come along with the same problem, I can see my questions being a hindrance. They would be 'originals' for a duplication close, but offer no help. In the case where future answers would make them helpful I still feel that a newer question, where the problem is still in the asker's interests and they are able to judge a question as most helpful, would be an improvement to the overall quality. I also know that deleting questions can sometimes lead to the user being punished in unforeseen ways.
Should I delete the questions, or leave them be? Is there a way to mark them as "abandoned" in a way that would be more helpful, in the given context?
