I'm playing with solutions to one of my questions on SO. There are some great answers there, but no perfect ones (broken in a minor way, wrong after I clarified the question, or good but not ideal).
I want to award credit where it's due, but the final code will combine of one or more answers with my own tinkering. It looks like there are three options here:
- Mark-as-answered with the best answer (and there is a best answer), edit the question with my solution.
- Submit my own answer, upvote good answers.
- Submit my own CW answer, upvote good answers.
What's the right choice? This probably comes up on all of the SO sites. When the final answer is close to one of the submitted answers, the asker should get a chance to wrap up.
