  • Can you fix that first sentence? – Peter Mortensen Jan 8 '18 at 14:11
  • @PeterMortensen I've to change question's aspect. Thanks – Swapnil Jan 9 '18 at 9:53
  • Please don’t completely change your question, especially once you have an (accepted) answer. – Cai Jan 9 '18 at 11:37
  • Closed is wrong term. The correct term is "having accepted answer". "Closed" means "does not accept any new answer". – Shadow Jan 9 '18 at 11:53
  • @ShadowtheHedgehogWizard Yes that I want, I won't getting more and more answer as I've already accepted one which solved my problem. – Swapnil Jan 9 '18 at 11:55
  • That's not your choice to make. The focus of Stack Exchange is content. If someone can give a new answer to your question, it might help others. You don't get to decide to block this, even if the question is yours. Most you can do it mark existing answer as accepted, then people who come to post answer will notice there's already accepted answer so will think twice before posting a new answer, but that's it. – Shadow Jan 9 '18 at 11:56
  • Thank you @ShadowtheHedgehogWizard. So why some questions are closed even if they are good? – Swapnil Jan 9 '18 at 11:58
  • What you define "good" might not really be good for the site. Questions are closed for various reasons, you listed it here yourself. Yet again, single person can't decide what's good and what's bad for a site, that's something the community as whole is doing, more likely 5 users with high reputation. (Or one moderator, who is trusted to do those things.) – Shadow Jan 9 '18 at 12:00
  • @ShadowtheHedgehogWizard Ok, Thank you so much for your invaluable time to help. – Swapnil Jan 9 '18 at 12:02

It's none of the above.

Questions are only closed when they are unsuitable for receiving answers. Having received an answer is not a reason for not receiving more answers.

Instead of closing your question you should upvote any answers that helped you and/or accept the answer that helped you the most by clicking the green checkmark next to that answer, as explained in How does accepting an answer work? faq.
