I asked the question, I was looking for 24 hours. One hour after posting I found an answer.

What should I do:
- close the question,
- answer my Q, and close without grading.
- wait, until somebody provide correct answer, and grade him/her?

Wait 24hs and grade Jan 11, 2006

You are in a unique position to wait for an answer and then choose the best one based on your information. This will be very helpful for KudoZ database and the winner will appreciate the points.

If nobody provides the correct answer or a helpful hint in 24hs you can close the question without grading and providing the correct answer for KudoZ database.

This is just my opinion, of course

Wait to see if anyone else gets it and give them the points. Jan 11, 2006

Hi Tadej,

That happens to me when I notice I’ve been looking in the wrong side of the dictionary.

Close the question without grading Jan 16, 2006

Just had to close a question without grading because the one answer I received was a literal translation not supported by my (or his) research and I found an answer elsewhere which I've added to my glossary.
