Etiquette: Accepting your own solutions

What's acceptable in these situation?

 

I started a thread yesterday that has since had no solutions.  Since then I've worked on the problem and finally came up with a solution

 

Do I mark my solution as the accepted one.  One one hand, marking it as solved will help others with a tricky Excel-to-Alteryx problem.  On the other, I could see how this could easily be abused.

 

Thoughts?

@danilang I would absolutely mark it as a solution to benefit others! 

 

If someone were to try and abuse the system, they would stick out pretty easily (and the moderators would handle the situation accordingly). I follow almost all of the posts and I can't come up with an example of somebody "over-accepting" their own solutions. This is one of the best communities out there!

I agree with @patrick_digan.  Mark it.  But also will add:  If someone's post helped you to get there, throw them a solve bone too.

 

Cheers,

Thanks for posting this question to the community @danilang!

 

@patrick_digan and @MarqueeCrew hit the nail on the head. That's exactly the behavior we expect from our members. 

 

Go team!
