Which answer do I accept if I have multiple correct answers?

I received two answers to a question I asked. One solution suggested I do things in a completely different manner than I have been. Another acknowledged that the first solution was correct but went on to explain how to do what I was asking.

Should I accept the first answer because it provides the better way of doing things or should I accept the second one because it answers the precise question that was asked?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

1 Answer 1

Accept which ever answer helped you the most.

This could be either - that's for you to know and no one else can tell you otherwise.

You could also award a bounty to the other answer as an extra "thank you".

I assume that you've voted both answers up of course.
