Question on a rarer type of abandoned question:

Is there a way for 'Community' to take ownership of these questions so an answer can be accepted and the data can be maintained? Is it simpler to just create a new question and drop in the useful bits and accept it? How is this 'supposed' to be done?

  • @JorgeCastro - Thanks, at the time I asked I was unaware of jrg's answer being a possibility. That's why I accepted it. Jan 29, 2013 at 3:55

1 Answer 1


Leave them, they have good answers.

Also, if a answer has a score of 1+, than the system considers it "answered".

So in short, I don't think anything needs to happen, and I'm not sure we can even do a lot.

  • @guntbert answer. thanks!

  • Are you really sure it isn't +2? That's what I've always been told...
