I have seen instances of people asking whether their proofs are correct or not. In such cases, the answers are often given in the comments section because the actual proof of the question has not been asked by the user.

Shouldn't there be some dedicated way to handled such questions, because after all these kinds of questions end up with no answers in the answer box?

What kind of feature (if any) could help us to deal with such questions effectively?
