Marking Questions as Answered By Yourself

Is it possible to mark your own question as answered by yourself? I recently had a question that some people gave an incorrect answer too. When I figured out the real answer, I tried to mark it as correct. However it did not work. Does anyone know how to this?

You can't because that would be granting yourself upvotes and upvotes are supposed to be things that other people give you for being helpful.

You can either delete the post, or add a comment/edit the answer to your question (add an "Answer:" to the end of your post, and rename it to "[Answered] <original name>"

Sadly you can't do that atm. if you feel like your answer is correct, you can always message a mod on the repl.it discord server who will look into it. You can practice marking answers as answered by using mine (lol)
