I know users can mark their own posts as answered, and Laserfiche can mark them as answered. But a lot of questions remain unanswered (even if they are answered and just were never marked). It would be great if there was a way for community members to vote for the correct answer, and mark it an answered if it has enough votes, or perhaps based on the repuation or achievements of the users voting for the answer (kind of "trusting" those users to know what they are talking about). Maybe the ability to vote would be locked behind a minimum reputation level like the ability to edit categories is.
Alternate to requiring a minimum number of votes - maybe it could just wait for a set amount of time (like 7 or 10 days) without the original poster selecting an answer before it defaults to the voted answer.
I think functionality like this would help resolve the issue of questions that are answered but never get marked that way.
