It appears that I can only accept a single answer but I really would like to reward the other answer-ers as well. I did give them an upvote but still I feel that there should be some mechanism to award both credit for giving a complete solution.
Also, want happens in the theoretical case where 2 answers both successfully answer your question and take different approaches, possibly both approaches being unknown to you? You certainly would want to award both responders for their effort and for the information you learned.
Can it be possible to accept multiple answers?
