[Meta] Can we get the ability to mark our own posts as answers in our own threads?


#1

In threads such as this one, the correct and valid answer to the question has been posted by the asker. However, given the inability of a poster to mark one of his own posts as an answer, that thread will never be marked as “answered”, potentially reducing its visibility. This lack of functionality devaluates the usefulness of the “mark as answered” feature; could it be added? I can understand it might be a target for abuse in a larger community, but this is not a large community, and given the high (multi-hundred-dollar) bar for entry, it never will be.

Thanks. Something like this would make a positive difference, I think.
