A number of fatwa questions, especially older ones, ask for rulings about particular matters, but do not specify which (if any) school they're actually seeking answers from. These questions are often just seeking a general ruling, and they end up with a large number of single-opinion answers based around particular scholars/schools.
(I hate these on principle, but the community keeps encouraging them so whatever: That's a whole other discussion.)
My concern, in this case, is for those cases when the questioner has actually accepted an answer. For example,
In the above question, the question has exactly one answer (clearly coming from a Shi'ite perspective) which is upvoted and accepted. However, the questioner had not mentioned at all what (if any) school she's interested in ruling-wise.
My general strategy in such cases has been to modify the question to match the accepted answer; this has, however, recently met with some backlash. Leaving the question as-is, however, really isn't helpful: While this may be a perfect answer for the questioner (she did accept it after all), many of the people asking that exact particular question (as phrased) would not necessarily be interested in a Shi'ite ruling.
Under the general Stack Exchange principle of making a Q&A repository for the ages, this is problematic, as it basically just ensures that many (most?) of the people who are finding our site via search engines etc. will just… not get what they want. Or, worst case scenario, think that they are getting what they want without ever realizing it's a Shi'ite ruling.
What exactly should we be doing with such questions?
