Mark Answer as Favorite / Star

I have found in several cases that while the question itself is not particularly interesting, one of the provided answers contains fantastic information that I would consider 'favoriting'. In some of these cases it is not even the accepted answer that I would wish to favorite.

I think a really good answer deserves as much recognition as a really good question.

So I ask that the ability to 'favorite' an answer be added along with badges recognizing levels of accumulated favorite answers.

I think this should be on MSO, thus the vote to migrate – simchona Mar 12 '12 at 3:38

I am highly in favour of an option to "favorite" an answer. The question asked is merely an impetus to the real goal: a quality answer. It is the answers that supply the valuable information in the SE network.
