This question has been addressed elsewhere. See: Suggestion for allowing to mark answers as "accepted", "outdated" or "dangerous"

This question was closed; new answers can no longer be added. Users with the reopen privilege may vote to reopen this question if it has been improved or closed incorrectly.

I'm not referring to accepting just one answer like on Stack Exchange because your question can receive > 1 answer and each answer solves your question synergistically. No one answer solves your question, but each of them contributes to answering your question.

This doesn't duplicate https://meta.codidact.com/posts/277966#answer-277966 because an "solved" tag wouldn't attach to a particular post.

A "solved" tag is self explanatory. Not only does it remind me that a question is solved, but it will signpost to users to focus their time and effort on unanswered questions.

More importantly, a question can have answers that don't solve it, or only partially solve it; as is, someone seeing that the question has an answer might consider it solved, and not take the time to read/answer it, although actually the question is still open. celtschk‭ 4 months ago
