There are many questions in PSE with a few answers (or sometimes no answers at all) which do not yet have any accepted answer with tick mark even though many weeks or months have passed. Shouldn't the OP give the correct answer after a certain period of time? Or is it left open so that future users can also try their head into trying to solve them?
I am asking this because many people try to answer the questions; and if, even after a certain period of time, they do not know the what actual answer should have been, I guess all their effort somehow feels wasted without a proper closure. They also can't understand exactly how they should have approached the question.
