This question already has an answer here:
- How does accepting an answer work? 1 answer
The problem being:
- an answer to a problem that works on my "machine" may not on yours, and what works on yours may not work on Person C's;
I'm wondering therefore whether it would be more relativistic - ergo accurate - to simply use upvotes, and dispense of the notion of an "accepted" answer?
For those interested in context, this is the post that prompted my question.
(apologies if this question has already been discussed and/or concluded, I did search for existing threads but found none).
