The Guideline project:

The main part in the answer here is nice and simple, up to date, so I think it can be moved like that. The new guide topic "Suggesting and accepting answers as correct" covers a bit larger area. The final guide post might include for example:

Suggesting an answer as correct

  • option 1: Person who asked the question can always accept any of the answers
  • option 2: It answers directly to the question and works for everybody who might have the same question
  • option 3: It solves the issue in question without requiring developer mode, not being only a workaround
  • option 4: It's clearly the most supported answer within other suggested answer to the same request
  • If youre unsure, leave it to OP / moderators / admins to suggest as correct

Accepting an answer

  • means that the question can be closed with that one answer as the correct one
  • there must be an answer suggested as correct before closing a question as "answer accepted"

The guideline project discusses on these old guideline posts until September 20th, updating and gathering information from here to a new post The Guideline. You're welcome to join the project, for example by editing and commenting this answer.
