If you answered your own question, you can post your answer as a comment and accept it as the solution to the question. Follow these steps (screen shots below):

  • Log into your Experts Exchange account.
  • Go to the question you would like to close. You'll find it under "My Open Questions" in your workspace.
  • Post a comment that contains the answer you found to your question.
  • On that comment, click "Best Solution". Click "Next" on the bottom rail and you will be redirected to the Award Points and Grade page for your question.
  • Leave a comment explaining the reason you're accepting your own solution.
  • Click "Close Question".

You'll be redirected back to your question, which now has a close request pending. Your question will be pending for 4 days. This gives the experts a chance to object to the way the question was closed. If there is no objection, the question will be closed after 4 days.

Made a mistake? Just post an objection to the question to cancel your close request.
