Sorry but I don't understand, why should I find closed question once the answer is accepted? see this for example:

Don't you think there might be different answers to get the same result? I believe there is no need to close a question, unless it offensive or just doesn't belong to this place...

Don't you agree??

@ztank1013 : The question is reopened, thanks for pointing it out

@SoumyaC can you reopen that question? Having a valid answer is not enough of a reason to close the question. It should be offtopic of duplicate or something along those lines to consider closing. Otherwise leave them open. Thanks.

@mether : done !! But while closing the question one clause of it was the right answer being accepted !! What for that clause is given ?

It makes sense to use that when you are building just a knowledge base but for us, we are building a place where users can come in and add additional comments and answers as they see fit and with the frequency of releases, it is not unexpected that the best answer would actually change over time.
