What is a “closed” question?

If one of my questions were closed by somebody but I feel one of the answers were useful, can I still accept it?

Also, can any answer to a closed question be voted upon?

  • @Pop, I'll cast the final close vote, but wonder when the Team will figure out that Search is really important. Especially the related question search when you're typing in a question. Commented May 20, 2011 at 3:55
  • @Lance, okay...? Not sure why you're notifying me, I don't remember ever saying that search is unimportant.

  • @Pop, because you cast the first close vote, linking to a question that better searching might have found. I also question the whole concept of closing as a duplicate of a FAQ question, but that's another issue. Commented May 20, 2011 at 5:44
  • kind of ironic...

Yes, you can still accept it, and answers can still be voted on by everyone. Other users can also vote on your question.

Only locking prevents these actions.
