I am pretty new to this forum and I was wondering what the proper custom would be in my situation. I posted a question a few days ago and last night, after some fiddling with the problem some more I figured out how to get the solution (or what I believe to be it). There are currently no other answers to the question, just some unhelpful comments. I have looked around and it seems different moderators have different opinions.
To me, it seems like a waste to just delete the question because what if someone has a similar question later on? On the other hand, it may look like I am cheating the system somehow (although you don't get points for strictly answering, right?), especially since I didn't check the "answer your own question" box.
