To avoid the sort of debate found on a related question, I think it's unneeded to allow one to upvote an Answer she Accepted.

[edit] Accepting an Answer pretty much implies an Upvote. So it's just extra work since a lot of people on that debate Upvote AND Accept, and you can find other varieties on that linked Question.

Why? What's wrong with the debate in that question? –  Pëkka Oct 20 '10 at 8:17

@Tshepang what's wrong with that debate? I don't see the point –  Pëkka Oct 20 '10 at 8:25
    
@Pekka, I added some info on the Question. –  Tshepang Oct 20 '10 at 8:27

@Tshepang I still disagree. There can be situations when I don't like an answer but have to accept its truth (e.g. somebody saying "no, it's not possible".) Then there can be situations where I want to upvote the answer. No, I don't really see merit in this –  Pëkka Oct 20 '10 at 8:39
    
@Pekka, seems like a petty distinction to me. –  Tshepang Oct 20 '10 at 8:51

With >325 of them I'm all for it. But it is a dupe and you didn't add any compelling arguments to the existing discussion. –  Uphill Luge Oct 20 '10 at 10:42

Terrible idea. If anything, you should recommend it.

This clearly is a bad idea (according to the downvotes). I'm kinda convinced by Pekka:
