I posted a question with a , and although I got multiple answers, it became clear that no such word exists. Now, I'm unsure what to do with my question. Do I pick the answer that gets the closest to what I want, even if it's not a single word? Or do I just delete the question?

This question differs from the reported duplicate, in that this question is addressing the topic from the perspective of the OP (asker) rather than a contributor who is answering.

    I'm voting to reopen this meta question because the purported dupe is looking for something different. Mr Hen's question asks about 'no answer' SWRs from the community's perspective. Nils' question is asked from the OP's perspective.

    The question linked is itself a duplicate of What is the best way to answer a question which has no answer? And it seems to deal with the present topic sufficiently well.

  • @Mari-LouA Yes, I’d prefer if that question were used as the canonical for dupe purposes. If a diamond mod is reading this, can you please reopen and close this question as a dupe of Mari-Lou’s link, rather than the current dupe target?
