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

I've posted a question here a few days ago (Shuffle list with some conditions) and I've received a lot of help from 2 users, and I feel that both had an enormous contribution to my problem. So I feel if I mark one of them as correct, I am despising the effort that the other one had toward my problem.

I would like to mark both answers as correct or at least compensate the one that doesn't get his answer as correct so his effort is not despised.

You cannot accept multiple answers.

You should accept one and vote for the other (or for both).

If you really want to express gratitude, you can offer a bounty.

  • but then again, only the correct gets all bounty, if , at least bounty can be divided into several answers, there the problem would be solved!

You cannot accept more than 1 (one) answer.

If you have sufficient reputation, you can upvote as many helpful answers as you want. Currently this requires 15 rep.

  • I Do Know I cannot accept more than one, that is why I'm posting this!
