(I've searched Meta for a related question, but didn't find anything.)

The first Question I asked on WPSE was intended from the start to be a Community Wiki (which I am assuming means "collection of resources, for which there may be no single, correct answer").

My question is: should I accept an answer for this question? It continues to show up in my profile, and WPSE nags me about accepting an answer; also, I want to ensure that my accept rate remains appropriate.

Sorry if this is a dumb/obvious question; I'm still learning the nuances of WPSE.

If the question is on the wiki it doesn't effect your acceptance rate so there is no need to accept an answer. Although yes you get that nag screen. I think if its on the wiki the nag screen shouldn't show.

I think that community wiki posts do not influence accept rate. Well, I've seen mentions of that, so it may or may not be how things currently work.

I tend to accept some answer I particularly like or agree with, but that doesn't carry much weight or meaning in community wiki anyway.
