How to choose solution

There's something I am wondering about. Many people respond to my questions and provide super detailed solutions. But I can choose only one solution.

  1. is it important/appreciated to assign solution? I think it is on stack...
  2. if you have many solutions, how do you choose?

(I looked in the code of conduct :stuck_out_tongue:)

As far as I know, the only impact that choosing a solution has is:

  • It displays a :ballot_box_with_check: next to the post, so people know it has been answered.
  • It adds a link in the first post of the thread to the chosen solution.

I don't think it's bad etiquette on this forum to not select a solution (and it's certainly not against the CoC!). Doing it is just a nice way to highlight which post was helpful in resolving your issue :slight_smile:
