Awarding Points

By tufop ·
I just checked on 2 questions I asked and in both cases more than one person answered correctly and gave good information so I wanted to award more than one person points. I accepted the answers I wanted to a rejected the wrong answers but when I finished the point total I was awarding did not add up. Is it possible to award more than one answer (person) points in the same question? points

Awarding Points

I got this from the faq section here:

My specific question or issue is not addressed in the FAQs listed.
It looks like they should be evenly split amongst accepted answers. Otherwise you could always recreate the same question to award points to the other person and detail that in your info.

Yes, the points are automatically distributed among all "accepted" answers. Yes, you can accept more than one answer.

"Rejected" answers do not get any points.

There's a minimum quantity of points as well. This 5 point question (if you accept the answers) will gain us that minimum (which i think is 10 or 20 points???) -- a zero point question with answers accepted, will also gain a minimum. a 100 point question, that generates 10 accepted answers will also be awarded that minimum.There are problems with the way this is done... it's oftentimes quite accidental that proper answers get rejected.
