I had an instance where I had posted an issue on the forum asking for guidance to an issue. After months of no response I was able to come up with a possible solution. Another user confirmed my theory and added a little more information. We were both correct however only one was allowed to redeem the "solution" points. I think that his might be true for others. It would be nice to allow both people to receive the points or even to split them in half.

Thanks,

I used to frequent Experts Exchange and there is a nice mechanism there to split the "Solution" between 2 or more people.  I guess the each person would get an equal share, or the thread starter could assign "partial" credit to each person who helped reach the solution.

I totally agree, I wanted to choose 2 people for one of my question but couldn't

And then there's the hijacked thread, that discusses more than one unique problem and therefore has more than one unique solution.

Giving the Admins and TAs the ability to cull these hijacked threads to a new post might  alleviate this issue.  However, I have to wonder if it might cause even more confusion  without some forward and backward linking between the two affected posts

I've had a few hijacks and I just suggest to the hijacker to please open a new thread and cross-link both ways for more information.
