Some questions are so vast topic in Hinduism and may have more than one answers. So it should be allowed to accept more than one answer.

  • Is this your feature request asking to get an option to select multiple answers or are you asking a support question if you can select multiple answers to a question? Apr 5, 2018 at 19:42
  • No such feature doesn't exist. We can accept only a single answer. However accepted answer doesn't necessarily mean correct answer. It indicates that is more helpful answer the user got like a best answer (to user) among many other. Apr 5, 2018 at 19:58
  • No, as said here, you can't mark multiple answers as accepted. You can upvote any answer and you may also start and offer bounty to another answers!

Only one answer should be allowed to be accepted. Usually OP selects the best answer among all and as the superlative suggests "best" cannot be many!

Also, giving of +15 reputation with an acceptance, easily may create bloating of reputations. Because there is no minimum reputation requirement to accept an answer (upvote=15, downvote=125).

BTW, if user changes mind, then that answer can be "un-accepted" -- by re-clicking the right tick mark OR by accepting another answer.

Mark answer doesn't merely imply being correct one. It actually implies being the best answer. In SE communities all answers should be correct one which are called accepted. You mark the best answer from these many valid/acceptable/correct answer.

    Best according to OP not universally or absolutely.

  • "In SE communities all answers should be correct one which are called accepted." What do you mean by this statement?
