Some questions posted on Islam.SE are in fact a debate form, rather than a simple Q/A. For instance, the questions asking different views (of different schools, scholars, etc.) about the same problem, that have more than one the so-called "accepted answer".
Having one "accepted answer" on these questions makes the final outcome biased towards the personal idea of the user who has asked the question, even if there are other answers with higher upvotes.
Ho to face this situation? These are some answers:
- To close the questions that ask for multiple answers (from different schools, scholars, etc)
- To ignore this bias
The answers above are the simplest, but not the best - I think. We have already very constructive questions asking multiple answers - of different schools or ideas - and they are really great, because many Islamic questions are not limited to a single answer.
Ignoring the bias towards a single user's idea - the person who created the question - is also something that can be ignored, but also can be solved: A better solution can be a "multiple-answer" or "debate" flag on the question, that can be set by 5 votes - like a close flag - and if set, there would be not a single "accepted answer" for the question anymore.
By this means, just the number of upvotes will decide the more qualitative answers to the question.
What's your idea? Is there any better solution?
