to close or not to close a question

francis Marketplace Partner Apr 17, 2013

Hi,

I have a question which resulted in a significant number of responses.
One of the responses says that what I'm looking for is not possible.

So the question is not answered, but there is a response which might be considered as correct.

What should I do now

a) Mark the response as the correct answer.
b) Close the question

Francis

IMHO you should mark the answers as correct. It often happens that the answer to "How can I do this" is "You can't". In this case this is as good an aswer as you will get.

Note that the help page for Answers (https://answers.atlassian.com/karma/) says that you get 25 karma " if your answer is marked as the best answer". Note that they use "best" to describe what you call "correct" which might have a slightly different meaning.

In the end, I believe you should mark as correct the answers that helped you reach a verdict on how you should approach a certain problem, but after all this in entirely up to you to decide which answer was the most helpful.
