There are a many questions that has been answered, and many of them has not been marked as "the" answer. Seems like a lot of users are just asking but does not bother to mark them.

It can become a bit annoying for users who answers a lot, since they do not get their points, and the posts remains as unanswered.

Can for example admins mark them?


StackExchange considers questions as answered when they have an answer with an upvote. So if you feel that the answer is a good one just upvote it and the question is counted as answered.

Furthermore a user can accept an answer:

So accepting an answer is a personal thing to a user. I don't think that an administrator should make this choice.
