In reference to this question about a possible film adaptation of a book; what should happen when a new response turns out to be more accurate than the original accepted answer? I can think of a few possibilities:
- The question should have been closed because it was either too localized or not answerable
- The new answer is correct a so it should be marked as the accepted answer
- The original answer should stand because it was correct at the time
I think it is important to consider both the original poster's perspective as well as the community's point of view. The original poster might be more interested in the correct answer, but the community might focus on the validity of the question itself.
