I wonder is Randy is experimenting with the ability to "Unanswer" a question and mark the better one as the "Answer" - something a lot of people have been asking for for a long time, though I suspect he tries this stuff out first on a sandbox, non-production copy of the database rather than the production one.

It looks like multiple answers can now be done. Have you added that capability? For example I saw it in this posting. Though only one of the "Answerers" is listed on the main topic view.
