This question already has an answer here:
- Best answer versus best solution 1 answer
I've asked a question, which has a number of answers. One of them has 16 upvotes, big answer, very complete, and is probably going to be the most useful for other visitors in the future. On the other hand, there is another answer, 0 upvotes, just one little paragraph that provides me with exactly what I need.
Should I accept the small answer that perfectly solves my problem, or should I accept the broader answer, and that is going to benefit the greatest number of future visitors with similar problems?
