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

Possible Duplicates:
Woudn't it make sense to have more than one answer acceptable?
Allow more than one answer to be accepted

Sometimes there are two completely correct answers given by two users which are not at all overlapping. I would like to be able to select a "secondary" answer. Both answerers should get the rep and future users should see that the other answers.

How about instantiating an array? There are multiple ways to do it. Even though there may be a more "elegant" way, there are multiple ways to do so. – Moshe Nov 8 '10 at 19:47
@BrunoLM - Actually, I was talking about where there are two users who offer alternative answers which are correct. – Moshe Nov 8 '10 at 19:52
