It's not currently possible to mark a "Best Answer" for a question in
LO's deployment of Askbot:

Questions from the last few weeks have been accumulating with nobody
empowered to "close them out" and mark them as Answered. Some of the
questions don't have (complete) answers yet, but it's hard to find the
signal in all of the noise.

The Askbot software offers at least three user options to 'close 'questions:
1) The asking party (original user who posed the question) can accept an answer
2) The asking party can delete the question
3) (I believe) A user can close someone else's question if they have
enough karma

AFAIK, the only currently working option on LO's ask site is #2. This
is rather suboptimal.
