Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

What is more important to an answerer: Accepted answer or reps? A lot of times I get multiple good answers and it's hard to choose, so I pick one (fastest, first, most usable, nicest, I dunno) for the accepted answer, and then +1 the "runners-up" that I think deserve it and put in effort or something. Is this right?

Accept the answer that you consider best (that helped you most), and upvote all good answers. The reputation that comes with it is incidental, the point is to indicate good answers to the next visitors.
