Allow multiple replies to be selected as "good answers"

    Often there is more than one solution for a problem.
    And sometimes the discussion splits into two different questions.

    For those cases, it would be nice to be able to select multiple replies as "good answers".


    I found an issue (thread)
    - We need a solution for the code. (comment)
    - - Code Solution (comment reply: good answer)
    - We need a solution for the UI. (comment)
    - - UI Solution (comment reply: good answer)

    In these cases it would be nice to be able to select multiple replies as good answers. Maybe this could be an option for each forum to enable/disable as they wish?

    1. Yes I think this makes sense. In fact, currently I'm thinking about slightly unifying pages (a.k.a. threads) and comments, so that lots of things that works for pages, will work also for comments:

      A comment can, in the (distant?) future, be changed to a task, with a Doing status: Planned, Doing, Done. Or to a question, with an answer selected in the sub thread with the comment as its root. So, in your example, Talkyard could understand that "We need a solution for the code" is a question waiting for an answer, and it'd appear in some "Waiting for an answer" list, so as not to be forgotten. (Although it's "just" a comment, not a page.)

      In this way, one can create one main page for a small project, and then add comments for a few separate tasks or questions to be done or answered, as part of that project. Then one's co-workers can mark these comments as done, as the project progresses. Once the last comment has been marked as Done, the software asks: "Do you want to mark this whole page as Done?   [Yes]   [Not now]".

      (Not happening the nearest time, just thinking about the future database structure, making some changes anyway.)
