I posted this question very recently. To sum it up, an upper manager alerted me to a bug I couldn't repeat, so I needed to ask him for help describing its behavior and testing my fixes. I was hoping for advice on getting information from him without bothering him too much with "non-managerial" duties.
Now, fortunately for me, but unfortunately for my question, I took a blind stab at fixing the bug and it looks like it worked. The attempt took place before I asked my question, but the confirmation took place shortly after. Now I'm unsure what to do with the question.
I understand that helping me with this question is a side effect of Stack Exchange's larger goal of helping anyone with this question, but at the same time, I can't actually try out any of these solutions; the problem's gone. If I were to pick a correct answer, it would only be because I liked it the most. That doesn't seem like it's what Stack Exchange is all about.
Is there a protocol for what to do if your question becomes moot?
It's still a pretty young question and (I think) eligible for deletion.
