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

Currently, the "add another answer" button only appears if you've already answered the question. How about putting it on if there's already two answers? This would help fend off people who register just to put a "thank you" or a "me too" answer as comment.

Why the downvote? Perfectly good feature request. – Hello71 Jul 15 '10 at 22:55
Welcome to Meta Stack Overflow. On Meta, downvotes just mean "I don't want this" instead of "this is a bad question". See this question for more info. – waiwai933 Jul 15 '10 at 22:57

Why would "Add Another Answer" deter those posts when "Post Your Answer" doesn't? I don't think it would change anything; "another answer" just reminds you that you've already answered

Add Another Answer shows a dialog asking you if you're sure; Post Your Answer doesn't. – Hello71 Jul 15 '10 at 23:00
@Hello So your actual request is to have "Post Your Answer" show a dialog asking if you're sure, if there are answers already on the question? – Michael Mrozek Jul 15 '10 at 23:02
Er, yeah, I guess. – Hello71 Jul 15 '10 at 23:03
