Hi All I am rather new here, wondering about this
Jim asks Q1.
Kyle posts accepted answer A1.
Mary posts answer B1 that was not accepted.
A new question Q2 is asked, seemingly unrelated to (at least, not marked as a duplicate of) Q1. Nancy notices Q2 would be well-answered by pointing to answer B1 instead of repeating B1 outright. Perhaps B1 was more extensible/more generalized/more useful.
My question: Does (or should) Mary get reputation for her answer by way of referral? How about Nancy?
