Woudn’t it make sense to have more than one answer acceptable?

Assume that you post a question which actually asks two questions. If one user answers half, and another user answers the other half, then you may want to accept both answers. But you can't.

I'm suggesting a feature to allow users to accept two or more answers for their questions.

I'll make a counter-suggestion: Ask your two questions in two questions.

    +2 if I could. Anything else is abusing the design of SO.

  • But @mmyers if the questions are similar and are very related. If I post two questions people will say to post in the first. Nov 12, 2009 at 21:38
  • @Nathan: Not in my experience - Usually it's obvious that requirements changed. Providing a link to the previous question saves typing too..

    How related are we talking? If they're that close, I can't imagine that someone would be able to answer one part but not the other.

    If one person can answer one question, and another person can answer the other, then there's two distinct questions there, and they should be asked separately. Nov 12, 2009 at 21:43
