As someone who asks a lot of questions out of curiosity, I don't like the idea of questions being "closed" to more opinions after Most Helpful Answers are selected.
Because I'm always eager to hear more answers to my questions.
Sometimes I don't get as many answers to my question as I would've hoped, so I liked the fact that my question would remain open for more people to respond to if they came across the question later.
I also liked the possibility for my question to experience a resurgence in new opinions after it appeared again on people's newsfeeds when I selected MHO, and/or after someone new added an opinion to it after a long time of not having been responded to.
Overall, I ask questions because I'm genuinely curious for answers, & I liked the fact that people could continue responding indefinitely.
GirlsAskGuys, it would also be beneficial to YOU to keep questions open to more opinions, even after MHO is selected.
Why? Let's say, for example, after a few months of a question having been asked & after a MHO is already selected, a person finds the question, & they share it with friends from outside GAG. Their friends may be interested in responding to the question, so they might increase the GAG population by making a GAG account to respond to the question, which they would've had no motivation to do if the question wasn't accepting any more answers.
At the very least, let a person *choose* if they want to close a question to more opinions, rather than having it "close" automatically.
